Northampton Balloon Festival 2015

The Ricoh imagine. change. special shape hot air balloon is at Northampton Balloon Festival this weekend.

Held at Billing Aquadrome, the sunshine came out to welcome the crowds and the giant cube was tethering in the main arena throughout the day. With up to forty balloons flying before sunset, the evening was finished with a night glow which drew even larger crowds.

The new Fortnum & Mason racer is also at the event and is being put through its paces for the first time by chief pilot Andrew Holly who will be defending his National Championship title next week at the British National Championships in France.
