Le Festival des Montgolfières is Duluths version of a balloon festival. It started three years ago. At the time I thought the first year would be the last year because Duluth is not situated in a good location. The winds have to be just right so the balloons don’t sail out into Lake Superior. I don’t think they have ever had an ascension although it is on their schedule. They do have tethered balloon rides but that is a poor substitute . Nevertheless they are still having the event. This year was combined with a kids kite flying event and a Color Run. It looked like most of the people were at Bayfront Park for the Color Run and very few people were paying any attention the the balloons.

After the balloons were deflated the Kiwanis held their Family Kite Fly. Lots of fun watching the kids flying kites.
