Balloons Galore at the BIBF!!

Last August we attended the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta as members of the public. We'd been before and had experienced a variety of weather, but we were immensely lucky in 2015 and enjoyed 3 launches of 100+ balloons into clear blue skies.

The layout of the site is ideal - nicely lit for photography, you are always close to the action and there is always something going on.

It does involve early starts if you want to see a morning mass ascent, but the effort is well worth it if there's light winds and sunshine.

 

 

We hope to be back again this year, this time with our press hats on, as it's a great venue for viewing an event like the Fiesta and wonderful entertainment - especially with the night glow and fireworks on the Thursday and Saturday evenings. Have a look at their website and get along to the show. It's well worth it.
