It's not always the flying saucers that appear in the skies over Roswell. Once a year, during the first weekend of May, hot air balloon aficionados meet for the annual Old Timers Rally.
The spectacle is quite amazing and really worth seeing. All proceeds go to charitable organizations in Roswell.
If you missed the Roswell event there will be three more hot air balloon rallies in New Mexico: One in September in Elephant Butte and two in October - the famous Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta and Mountain Balloon Rally in Taos.
