The Oregon Shakespeare Festival, in Ashland, Oregon. The theater has been here since 1935! The season runs from February through early November, and they have three theatres: two indoor stages, the Angus Bowmer Theatre and the Thomas Theatre, and the flagship outdoor Elizabethan Stage, which opens in early June and runs through mid-October. This is a must see when visiting Oregon!
The Albuquerque, New Mexico balloon festival, known as the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta®, is the world's largest hot air ballooning event. For nine days during the first full week of October, hundreds of colorful balloons float above the city each morning as dawn breaks over the Sandia Mountains. It's no wonder this visual feast is said to be the world's most photographed event.
