MONTREAL, Aug. 13 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank is pleased to be
actively participating for the fourth consecutive year as a Presenter of
the International Balloon Festival of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. To be
kicking off tomorrow, this anxiously awaited and favourite event of
balloon enthusiasts from near and far will feature no fewer than 115
colourful balloons, along with a wealth of other diversions of all
kinds. The Bank is inviting the public to take part in the festivities
and the various activities it will be presenting.
Among the attractions to be enjoyed at the Festival is the Laurentian
Bank Little + animation area, which will be made even more appealing
this year with renewed activities and décors. For its part, the
Laurentian Bank Little + House will be decked out in vibrant colours
and offer children an opportunity to transform themselves with makeup,
amusing hairdos and original costumes, and then to admire their new look
in decorative and distorting fun-house mirrors. Youngsters will also be
able to enjoy an array of other fun diversions on-site, including family
photos on the Laurentian Bank Giant Chair, Fishing for Numbers,
the Sandbox, the Balloon Booth, as well as the 1, 2, 3, Go! course for
