Watch A Flick Or A Concert From Your Car At Balloon Fiesta Park In Albuquerque, New Mexico

This time of year usually calls for an abundance of socializing with loved ones, new friends, and potential friends, but in an era of social distancing amid a pandemic, that has become just a little more difficult. We are constantly on the lookout for new alternatives to our usual socializing methods and drive-ins have started to gain a new following.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Tickets start at $25 per vehicle. Gates open at 7 p.m., showings begin after sunset and typically run until 10:40 p.m. For details about their movie schedule, directions, concessions, and more, visit the drive-in’s website or Facebook page.
