Eyes to the skies, Bristol!
The city’s annual Balloon Fiesta is back after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
And this year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever with 4 jam-packed days at Ashton Court Estate from 11-14 August.
It included three mass rises that saw more than 100 colorful balloons fly together over Bristol.
Festivities can’t go on without a practice run, and this morning (Monday, August 1) saw the start of pre-festival flights over the city.
The balloons were released at around 6am from Vassells Park in Fishponds and Pomphrey Hill in Emerson’s Green.
