Hot Air Balloon Festival

This evening we took in the Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival. We went to a park on the Ontario side of the river across from where the balloons are released. We got to see them as the climbed into the sky. They ended up passing quite low because our side of the river is a bit higher.

It was a fun adventure. BigE had fun. After about 50 balloons they had lost a little of their interest. That was until he was concerned that they were going to land on him!
