Traffic Jammed As People Try to Leave Fiesta

........................................................................................................................................................................................

The west side of the north parking lot is at a stand still as of 9:30 a.m., according to a Journal staffer stuck in the traffic.

People are leaving the Fiesta now in droves as most of the balloons have gone into the air, and traffic is a mess.

Google maps shows that as of 9:40 a.m., traffic is moving slow on Alameda between I-25 and 2nd street, on Jefferson between Alameda and Paseo, and around Paseo del Norte and I-25.
