Elephant Butte Balloon Regatta

This annual event brings dozens of colorful hot air balloons to the skies above Elephant Butte!

The Regatta usually happens near the end of summer or early fall. Organizers suggest spectators arrive early – by 7 or 8am – to watch balloon inflation and ascension. Tether rides are available, and balloon glows are held at night. All events are weather-permitting.
