On the Groupon it said no need to print or go through ticket line proceed to gate. At the gate we were sent to the trailer in the back to click redeem in front of a woman. She was about to give me a hard time for not having a printed version when I read the instructions to her. That was frustrating and she was rude. Overall the festival was just ok. Nothing special.

Blanketing 1.5 million square feet with inflatable festivities, International Balloon Festival of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu presents an elaborate, nine-day spectacle of hot air balloons, live pop acts, and family activities. Festival-goers can descend upon the playing field with a full-day pass that grants access to stages featuring pop stars such as Ke$ha (August 13), Marie-Mai (August 15), and Sean Paul (August 17). Arriving from Canada, the United States, Brazil, France, and the Land of Oz 125 hot air balloons offer airborne entertainment, launching daily at 6 a.m. from selected launching parks and 6 p.m. at the festival site filled with cloud-captivated passengers and passenger stalking clouds (not included in today's deal). Visitors can swing the kids by the interactive inflatables coloring the field at Balloon Planet, or cool down with a brew at Budweiser Terrace. Three different evenings boast Laurentian Bank Night Glows during which balloons morph into chinese lanterns, illuminating spectators' grins and glow-in-the-dark underwear as jugglers, acrobats, and fire-eaters perform amid the radiance.

Browse the International Balloon Festival's website to determine the best travel route and glean useful info regarding family services. The festival site opens at 1:30 p.m. on weekdays and noon on weekends and continues until well after the music headliners start at 9 p.m. Parking (not included in this Groupon) is $7 for cars and $20 for recreational vehicles.
