"We know that fairs and fes- tivals are a huge attraction for people while they are traveling," says Jacobson~ "So by connect- ing with someone's interests and suggesting events around the state they might enjoy we're giving them a reason to stay longer and have a more memorable experi- ence during their trip to New Mexico." By partnering with the Albu- querque International Balloon Fiesta to reach RV enthusiasts, and by using social media to reach those who are driving in, the department hopes to maxi- mize the impact of visitors with the ability to extend their stay. The New Mexico True Bal- loon Fiesta Adventure Guide is also designed to enhance the travel experience for those con- sidered Balloon Fiesta veterans. "In addition to Albuquerque's incredible attractions there are dozens of things to do in the sur- rounding area if you add a day or two to your trip" ~ays Jacobsen. "For wine lov S, there's the Santa Fe Wine and Chile Fiesta the weekend before Balloon Fiesta, and for outdoor enthusiasts there's the Chile Challenge Trail Event the weekend after. Even if you've been here before you'll find something new each year at a local festival." The New Mexico True Bal- loon Fiesta Adventure Guide is online at http:// esta-adventure-guide. The infor- mation will also be distributed at the New Mexico Tourism Department's "True Traveler" Mobile Visitor Information Cen- ter located on Main Street on the Balloon Fiesta grounds.
