BackGroud

The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is a yearly festival of hot air balloons that takes place in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA during early October. The Balloon Fiesta is a nine-day event, and has over 500 balloons each year. The event is the largest hot air balloon festival in the world


The Design

We created an app that made it easy to search the hundreds of balloons, pilots, vendors and events. While making the relevant features and information on the home screen.

Functionality

Using the app, Balloon Fiesta goes can search for some of their favorite balloons and launch site on the map. Find the location for a good breakfast burrito or one of the many vendors and exhibits. Along with all the most up to date event information from all nine days of the Balloon Fiesta


We launched the app with a complete database so it is a completely offline app.  We sync the data periodically to refresh the data. But the app is completely functional offline which is ideal for conditions on the launch field where there is limited internet connection.
