Balloons Over Angel Fire @ Angel Fire Balloon Field
Jun 14 – Jun 16 all-day

Watch a field of hot-air balloons at sunrise as they gracefully float up into the cool morning air of the Moreno Valley. Balloons Over Angel Fire is one of the few high-mountain hot-air balloon events in the country. Learn how the balloons work, talk to the pilots, take lots of pictures and spend Father’s Day weekend enjoying the laid-back pace of Angel Fire.

2019 Freedom 4th - Opening Band 1

Tylor Brandon is a country music band based out of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Born out of deep desire to get back to the root of old country music, the five-piece came together to form a group unlike any other in New Mexico. Tylor Brandon is all about showcasing the best in country music from all generations, and putting on a show to keep people on their feet, two-steppin’ the night away.

Joseph General and High Vibration began by fusing unity through the power of music. This multi-award winning, 6-piece reggae group is composed of some of Albuquerque’s top musicians and is considered a premier reggae band in New Mexico. With love and positivity at the heart of their message, the band delivers uplifting sounds and are determined to get audiences bobbing and swaying to their music.

Local rock band, Sister Mary Mayhem features the powerhouse vocals and bass grooves of Tess Fresquez. Tess is accompanied by the keen percussive acoustic and electric guitars and vocals of Jon Lee, the smooth melodic guitar riffs and vocals of Doug Miller and the solid percussive backbone drummer, Tommy Pannullo. The group’s intense sound, dynamic set list and precise musical talents converge with playing together for more than a decade. Influenced by Heart, Pat Benatar and Journey, this band rocks and entertains audiences all around New Mexico.
