Some of the balloons that we saw in Albuquerque in 2011 were there (Darth Vader, Wells Fargo, Smokey Bear, Sushi the fish, and others.) There were also some that we had not seen before as well. My favorite was The Old Lady in the Shoe, but High Kitty, Beagle Maximus, and La Ristra were also wonderful.

After leaving the park, tired and hungry, we stopped at Einstein's Bagles for breakfast, made a quick stop at Wal-Mart/Sam's, then headed home for naps and/or football on TV. About 4 P.M. we went back into Reno and did some gambling at Circus Circus. Steve and I had good luck there, but lost it all again at Boomtown. Oh well, no new RV for us! We had the $9.99 T-Bone steak dinner at the Bistro at Boomtown, and it was surprisingly good. Tired and broke, we headed back to the RV's, keeping a close watch for the bear.
