Join me on Saturday 9th of August for Europe's largest hot air balloon event.
Bristol International Balloon fiesta is famous for having the night glow at 6 pm.
Invite your friends, bring your picnic & lets make another amazing event in England :)
Get together: 3 pm (find the pink umbrella on the left side, see red cross on map below)
6.00am Mass Ascent - ‘Breakfast and Balloons’
Where you can watch the hot air balloons take to the sky as the sun rises with a morning coffee and bacon sandwich in hand. Take in the serenity of an early morning surrounded by countryside as the balloons ascend into the bright blue sky.
6.00pm Mass Ascent
If early mornings are not your thing, why not join us for the day enjoying lunch or afternoon tea, in time to see flypasts and secure a good spot to watch the evening ascent as the balloons lift off over the City of Bristol.
9.15pm Nightglow and Fireworks
The famous Fiesta Nightglows are a stunning end to your evening on. Over 30 ballooning teams will light up the night sky with their balloons in time to music as night falls at 9.15pm on both Thursday 7th and Saturday 9th August, followed by a spectacular fireworks finale.
