Bristol International Balloon Fiesta

The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta takes place between the 11-14 August.

Along with Wallace & Gromit and Isambard Kingdom Brunel, The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is now one of the city's most famous exports; an annual event that brings together enthusiasts and tourists alike.

This year's Fiesta is set to take place on the weekend of the 11-14 August, and will attract up to half a million visitors to see its wondrous displays and take part in events.

Twice a day at 6am and 6pm - and depending on the weather - more than 100 hot air balloons will ascend from the Fiesta's site at Ashton Court. Residents and visitors in Bristol will be able to admire the breath-taking view from miles around.

There is also entertainment to be had at ground level, with a fairground, local live music and food stalls.
