The Ultimate Hot Air Balloon Bucket List is the second in the series of Bucket List Books. It marks the 10th Anniversary of the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum and celebrates the fun of hot air ballooning. Every fall, thousands of people come to Albuquerque as spectators to take part in Balloon Fiesta and learn about hot air ballooning. These are the 100 things you should know. The book also looks at hot air ballooning all over the world. From Japan to Europe and South America, hot air ballooning has taken off. This includes history, things to do, events to see, and—if you feel the urge—purchase your first hot air balloon. Meanwhile, learn everything you can about hot air ballooning and make your own Bucket List!

New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez: "I look forward to completing the entire bucket list."
