Bristol Balloon Fiesta 2009

The first weekend in August marks the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta… and 4 days of 5am starts! The morning launches are always the best and well worth getting down on the site for if you can. There less people around  and it’s more about the balloons rather than the stalls, bars and fairground rides.

This years weather was perfect too. Only 2 launches disrupted by winds and blue skys all the way through.

Here are a few images from the Thursday nightglow, the Friday morning mass assent and the Red Arrows from Saturday afternoon.
