Parque Ecológico Metropolitano de León
International Balloon Festival
A festival well worth the 5 am wake-up, the International Balloon Festival in Leon is Latin America's biggest balloon festival. Get to the Park well before 7 am, when morning lift-off takes place. Admission is 60 pesos (around 5 dollars) and can be purchased at OXXO stores in Leon or at the park. There is something magical about seeing so many balloons in the air at once; makes you feel like a kid again.
