I love trucks. I have grown up around trucks. I love trucking culture, trucker slang, long roads, smell of diesel fuel, sound of diesel engine, and everything that goes with it. When I moved to Canada, I really wanted to get more into it. But it was not before this weekend when I had a chance to do it!
This weekend I was entertaining myself by visiting firefighters festival in Laval, on Montreal’s north shore.
Quebec in summer is a land of festivals. One of the most famous among them is the hot air balloon festival in St-Jean-Sur-Richilieu, which is held each year southeast from Montreal. It is the largest festival of its type in Canada. It is held each year since 1984. It attract numerous participants from all over the world and many spectators. This year there were balloons from Canada, USA, Brazil, and Belgium.
