Dates announced for balloon fiesta

Date Posted: 01/12/2014

The skyline of Bristol will look like something out of the Phileas Fogg story between 6th and 9th August, as the Hardy’s Bristol International Balloon Fiesta takes place.

The 2014 event featured 325 hot air balloon flights as well as air displays by the Breitling Wing Walkers and RAF Tycoon.

In 2015 there will be plenty to see and explore on the ground at the show, in addition to what’s going on in the air.

You can watch the mass ascents of balloons every morning with a coffee and a bacon sandwich, catch inflation races, see parachuting and spend the afternoons listening to live music on the bandstand stage.

Adventurous group members can also book in to experience their own hot air balloon flights – most providers can take eight people up at a time.

Private coach parties can arrange to be dropped off within close proximity of the event site, with coach directions clearly signposted.
