Labour day weekend is famous in the Outaouais region for the “Festival de Montgolfières de Gatineau”. Huge crowds gathered for this 4 day festival making it a great success for the Outaouais region. The festival hosted 67 hot air balloons, 300 activities, 40 amusement rides and an excellent line up of open air concerts. The nearly perfect weather allowed 5 successful lift offs of the seven departure windows, alas 2 lift offs had to be canceled due to stronger winds.
Enjoy the gallery of pictures I took of the event. This is a photographer’s paradise for beautiful colour images.
