Yes, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is the largest
and best known. The early popularity of hot air ballooning
in New Mexico led to many people learning to fly and crew
balloons and the idea of hot air ballooning events spread
around the desert southwest, where cool nights (due to
clear night skies) make for good flying conditions during
most of the year.
