There’s no shortage of magical things to experience this spring, but only the Rise Up Hot Air Balloon Festival in Alberta will take you to new heights.

Located in Medicine Hat, this enchanting event is held in support of Our Collective Journey (OCJ), a non-profit that customizes programs to better the mental health of those across the province.

Between May 23rd and 26th, guests can enjoy films, an artisan market, food trucks, of course, hot air balloons.

Have a busy schedule? Don’t fret, because there are a ton of chances to watch them take off!

Not only will they send balloons into the air in the morning and in the evening, but they will also host “balloon glow,” a magical nighttime extravaganza at Kin Coulee Park.
