ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) — Rain, clouds, and a breeze welcomed Balloon Fiesta visitors on Saturday morning. The weather yielded a yellow flag which, in turn, canceled mass ascension.

Most pilots drove away with their balloon setups once the cancelation was announced. However, a few stayed behind to give the crowd a peek at what the festival is all about. Photos of the static displays and crowd can be seen below.
