A successful Bristol International Balloon Fiesta

We started off the fiesta this year with a great Night Glow on the Thursday evening – glowing BWS Security Systems in front of crowds of thousands to a fantastic mix of music by Heart FM.
We were up early for our next flight on Friday morning, with the wind taking us towards the East – not a direction that we usually fly on from Ashton Court. We were flying in our new balloon Tango and we had the pleasure of taking of the organisers of the firework displays at the fiesta. A great flight taking us right over the firework display site and over to the North Somerset Showground, landing with plenty of other balloons.
Unfortunately it was too windy for us to take to the skies on Friday evening, but Saturday morning was fantastic. Very light winds took us all towards the old Cadbury’s chocolate factory in Keynsham, landing with many others we broke a record for the number of balloons taking off and landing in the same place.
A fantastic night glow followed on Saturday evening, and that was all the flying we managed to do due to the weather. We had an amazing dinner and party on the Sunday night with some very sore heads on Monday morning!
