This weekend our Remax Real Estate Team will be taking in the sights and wonder in High River.

 

High River will playing host to the 2013 Canadian Hot Air Balloon Championships, seeing 15 hot air balloon pilots from across Canada completing for a coveted spot at the World Championships in Brazil in 2014. Not to be missed is the iconic REMAX hot air balloon!!! 

 

 

There will be competition flights every morning & evening coinciding with sunrise and sunset - with additional `Fiesta Balloon Flights`by some impressive balloons including a Darth Vader balloon from Belgium. Also a sight to see is the `Night Glow` (shown above) where all of the balloons line up and inflate, illuminate by their flame againsty the night sky, but do not take flight. This gives spectators a uniue opportunity to see the balloons close up!
