    Since 2002 LEON (GUANAJUATO), MEXICO is the location of the most important and bigger "HOT BALLON FESTIVAL" in LATINAMERICA.

    In 2013; this festival got 200 hot ballons and nearly 2,000,000 people attended this event from all over the world.

    Is good to know that the very first mexican that could be able to flight a "HOT BALLON" was borned in GUANAJUATO state.

    The color, the lights and the emotion of the people is something great to live.

    This is an excellent example that MEXICO is not only drugs, deaths and arms.
