SAVE THE DATE & SPREAD THE WORD – October 4-7th
**Please ‘private message’ me with any questions**
Come one, come all to the 1st Ever Ever Ever Albuquerque Couch Crash during Columbus Day Weekend. We’re holding this premiere event during the largest international hot air balloon festival in the heart of the Land of Enchantment, so don’t forget your camera!
New Mexico is a mecca of outdoor fun and we have lots of activities planned for you. You can kayaking down the Rio Grande while watching the Mass Ascension of hundreds of hot air balloons, try something new with a hash run through Breaking Bad set locations, do a bike and brew tour of our local drinking holes, join us for a hike in amazing Tent Rocks, or even do some rock climbing on your own with some new friends in nearby White Rock Canyon. The thing is that there are tons to do for the outdoor enthusiast, and if we don't have it planned, we can at least point you in the right direction. There are lots of mountains, caves, rivers, and rock walls with your name on them.
We've also got the Greek Festival, Southwest Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, Native American cultural items, and the famous Route 66 here all in town within a short distance of each other.
