Peppa Pig Live

Friends and Lovers Balloon Rally
Can’t wait for the International Balloon Fiesta? You’ll love the Friends & Lovers Balloon Rally, a balloon launch event featuring more than 135 hot air balloons. This event is scheduled for February 13 and 14, and will take place at none other than Balloon Fiesta Park. Best of all, this event is free for the whole family.
Breaking BOO Ghost Hunting Tour
Every month on the last Friday and Saturday, you have the opportunity to tour Albuquerque in the infamous Breaking Bad RV and visit some of the show’s most recognizable locations, then investigate the sites that are rumored to be haunted. Sound kind of strange? We don’t disagree—but that’s the magic of this event—you’ve probably never participated in anything quite like it! Find out more information here, and book your tour today.
Amazing Scavenger Hunt Adventure
Your team of two to five people can enter this city tour for just $39.20. At this event, teams make their way along well-known and hidden gems of the city, guided by smart phones, solving clue and completing challenges while learning local history. You can start when you want and play at your own pace, and the hunt includes areas like the Old Town Plaza, the Natural History Museum, Tiguex Park, and more. There are 18 challenges and the entire game takes about three hours. Sound interesting? Learn more here!
Truckin’ Tuesdays and Food Truck Wednesdays

Every week, they gather at these locations to serve lunch from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Prices will vary between the different trucks, but you’re sure to find some favorites.
Albu-Quirky Downtown “Weird Walk”
Hosted every Friday and Saturday from 3:00-4:30 p.m., this tour features the outlandish personalities, odd crimes, and bizarre events that have shaped this city’s legacy.
