08 Aug Bristol International Balloon Fiesta 2019
At 7am this morning, up to seventy hot air balloons launched from Ashton Court to celebrate the start of the 41st Bristol International Balloon Fiesta.
Our line up of hot air balloons included our Renishaw balloon, which is well known throughout South Gloucestershire, our Fortnum & Mason balloon, our RICOH imagine.change. special shape cube, our giant special shape Hunter Boot, Adelaide the Longleat Koala and our new London Skyline hot air balloon which had its maiden launch in London last weekend.
After the launch, the hot air balloons had spectacular views of the River Avon and the Clifton Suspension Bridge before landing in The Downs among many of the other hot air balloons.
We then proceeded to tether for an hour and a half at the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta for the eager and growing crowds.
We are excited to see what the rest of the weekend will bring!
