Children love balloons. It’s a well known fact that even though they can cry if their balloon pops in their faces they will still be back for more. The colours, the way they float and the pure celebration of them keeps kids attracted no matter what their age. Now, magnify that happy feeling that kids get by 100% and you will feel what it’s like to attend the hot air balloon festival in St Jean sur Richelieu. And amazing experience for kids young and old, the Montgolfieres St Jean sur Richelieu is the largest hot air balloon gathering in all of Canada.
Montreal summer events
Friends, I cannot tell you how excited I am to participate in this great event again this year! I was so excited last year to post about The SugarShacks of Quebec since it is such a great Canadian heritage piece.
My husband and I approach the gate and smile as we take in the site of the blue and yellow big top. We are about to see the new performance, Amaluna, by Cirque du Soleil. I was invited to attend as a blogger so I meet and greet the press team and then I am given my tickets for the show.
I am so thrilled to be taking part in this fantastic event!
Not too long ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Pampered Patty during my own networking/charity event. She’s wonderful! Since then, we have been keeping in touch via Twitter and our blogs. So when she told me she was going to put together a blog party with Whispered Inspirations, Mom vs. The Boys, Good Girl Gone Green and Kat’s Confessions to celebrate Canadian bloggers, I wrote it in my calendar and anxiously awaited the date!
