Additional festivities during the three days include: Native American jewelry and art vendors; Native American dance performances (as Gallup is in close proximity to the Navajo reservation, and the pueblos of Zuni, Laguna and Acoma); a parade in downtown Gallup; an art show; and nightly balloon glows. The city of Gallup also has a wide variety of restaurants, galleries, museums and other attractions for visitors to enjoy.


The Red Rock Balloon Rally has received numerous awards, including “Best Balloon Event in The West” (Ballooning Magazine), “Most Outstanding Event” (New Mexico Tourism Association), “Outstanding Community Event” (Gallup Chamber of Commerce).
