The Balloonist's Prayer

Safe Flight Ceremony

We hope you have enjoyed your visit today and that all your Web journeys are safe and fun.

In keeping with a long-time ballooning tradition, we encourage you to conclude your Balloon Fiesta® Web flight with us by reciting the "Balloonist Prayer".

May the winds welcome you with softness.
May the sun bless you with its warm hands.
May you fly so high and so well that God
joins you in laughter and sets you gently
back into the loving arms of Mother Earth.

See you at the next Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta®!
