Fall New Mexico Festivals

Attend one of these fall festivals in New Mexico this year.  I wouldn’t have expected New Mexico to celebrate fall or the harvest, given its climate.  But I was wrong.  Of course, if you pass on the opportunity to attend one of the hot air balloon festivals that happen in New Mexico, in favor of a fall festival, then I think you are crazy.  Or still recovering from Oktoberfest in New Mexico.  In order to make the most of these festivals, look closely at the dates and start planning your schedule now!
