This is the only time throughout the year that private aircraft can fly over the glistening gypsum dunes at the White Sands National Monument. This unique experience will take place the day after the White Sands Balloon and Music Festival hosted by the Alamogordo Chamber of Commerce, the White Sands Balloon Invitational Committee, and the City of Alamogordo. Around 30 balloons are expected to launch around 7 - 7:30 a.m. No vendors or food will be provided at the park. Please be sure to bring your own water.
