Bristol Balloon Fiesta

August 12, 2013

This weekend saw a whole host of hot air balloons and balloon enthusiasts descend (literally) on Bristol.  The annual event is now in it's 35th year, and attracts over half a million visitors over the four day festival.  Pretty impressive! The real crowd pleaser is the night glow, where the balloons are lit up in time to music.  Pure cheese, but who doesn't love a bit of cheesiness from time to time?! I love to see the early morning and evening ascents; seeing the balloons floating peacefully above the city always brings a certain sense of calm. It certainly put a smile on my face during my morning run around the harbour anyway!
