Eyes to the skies, Bristol!

The city’s annual Balloon Fiesta is back after a two year hiatus due to the pandemic.

And this year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever with four jam-packed days at the Ashton Court Estate August 11 - 14.

This includes three mass ascents which sees more than 100 colourful balloons fly together over Bristol.

The festivities can’t get underway without a practice run though, and this morning (Monday, August 1) saw the launch of the pre-festival flights over the city.

The balloons launched at around 6am from Vassells Park in Fishponds and Pomphrey Hill in Emerson’s Green.
