Weekend What’s Up- September 2-5

Weekends are always fun but this weekend might just be double the fun. September starts great with a long weekend thanks to Labour Day on Monday. To avoid getting bored with that much of free time, we’ve been looking on what to do this weekend for you!

Canada’s largest balloon festival offers once again exciting shows, great musicians and delicious food while hot air balloons fill the Gatineau sky. In case you don’t only want to watch the hot air balloons from far away but want to be where it all happens, hurry up and get your tickets (or even a ticket for a hot air balloon ride).

Best part about having Monday off? Being able to have a party on Sunday evening without starting the new week walking around like coming from the set of Zombieland.  A museum might not sound like a typical party spot but in fact the Canadian Museum of History on Laurier Street holds the electronic music festival “Riverside Festival” this Sunday. Be fast and grab your tickets to a night of fun before they are sold out!
