Still looking for interesting activities to do this weekend? Take to the skies in a hot air balloon or refresh your wardrobe with tips learned at Montreal’s Fashion and Design Festival.
Running from the 13th to the 21st of August 2016, The International Balloon Festival of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu welcomes young and old to the largest hot air balloon festival in Canada. It is held each August in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, about 20 minutes southeast of Montreal and about halfway between Montreal and Vermont.
The festival is situated at the Saint-Jean Airport where dozens of colorful hot air balloons take to the skies twice daily weather permitting: (no storm activity detected within a range of 50 km (31 mi), and winds above 12 km/h (7.5 mph)).
The flights (usually accessible to the public at a cost) are launched each morning at 6:00 am and during the evening between 6:00 and 7:00 pm.
Other on-site festival activities include amusement rides, star bands, musical and comedy shows.
