It’s Official, Quebec’s 2015 Hot Air Balloon Festival Is Set For August

Quite possibly the most magical festival you will ever attend.

If you ask me, I don't think hot air balloons get enough credit. Think about it. They're graceful, colourful and spice up the sky unlike anything else. Why don't we spend more time looking at these beautiful, bulbous beasts? If you're like me and think that these bad boys are dope AF then you are in luck my friend.

International De Montgolfières De Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, is a festival that features carnival rides, live music and most importantly a giant hot air balloon show. This is an annual event in which thousands of people attend, so you gotta know it's good.

This year there is going to be over 100 balloons launched into the air, during both the day and the night. On top of that, they're offering performances from sky divers, a SAQ Bistro and a live show performed by this year's breakout singer Meghan Trainor!

The event takes place from August 8th - 16th, so you've got plenty of time to buy your tickets. The prices range anywhere from $10-$80, so as to adhere to your financial needs!
