Community invited to participate in Balloon Fiesta with 'X Marks the Spot'

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) - Balloon Fiesta enthusiasts can now join the fun from their home. 

A new program called "X Marks the Spot" will kick off this year.

Landowners can now prepare an "X" on their property, letting balloonists know they are welcome to land there.

Fiesta officials say it is a great way to welcome balloonists from around the world. 

"We just want everybody to get involved with it and put it on top of your building if you have an office. We just want to get involved and say we love balloonists and we love people coming to Albuquerque," says Jim Garcia, Balloon Fiesta board member.

Those interested in participating can pick up an "X" at the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce. 

Each day, participants will be entered in a drawing to win various prizes.
