New Mexico's International Balloon Fiesta

ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico - There's an exciting annual event coming up in New Mexico.

It's the Balloon Fiesta.

Over the weekend, volunteers prepared for Albuquerque's biggest event of the year.

Each October, more than 1,000 volunteers, known as navigators, help out at the International Balloon Fiesta.

There's obviously a lot of safety to keep in mind,  so Sunday staff hosted a series of basic safety courses for this year's volunteers.
