Balloon Fiesta

The Balloon Fiesta is one of the highlights of the year here in Bristol. We are internationally known as the hot air ballooning capital of the world! Watch the mass ascent at 6pm, where balloons of all shapes and sizes ascend into the air together! Will you see a minion? Or a smurf? A giant bumble bee or a flower?!

Don’t forget to stay for the night glow at 9pm, where all the balloons ascend again to show off their colours illuminated against the darkness! A spectacular sight!
