Long Description:
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.

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.

"Whether you want a fun packed day out for all the family, to meet up with friends for a drink whilst watching 150 balloons lift off, or simply to come and soak up the atmosphere at our village green - we can guarantee you a great time."
