Now in its 34th year, the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is Europe's largest annual Hot Air Balloon event and one of the UK's top five outdoor events.
The Fiesta attracts 500,000 visitors during the show's four days - and it's absolutely FREE to attend.
With mass Hot Air Balloon ascents at 6.00am and 6.00pm, the infamous Nightglows on both Thursday and Saturday evenings, arena and air displays, over 250 trade stands and caterers, and a variety of other entertainments, the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is an event not to be missed.
We hope to go as a group and maybe have a picnic or a few drinks on the grass (weather permitting), so 'join' here and we'll let you know our meeting point closer to the time.
If you want to go up in a balloon or be part of the ground staff drop me a line, we're hoping to get a group of ECers who fancy being involved.
