Phil’s Balloons was delighted to bring the BWS balloon along to tether at the side of the road for when the Olympic Torch came though the Flax Bourton area of Bristol. We were on site for 5:30am to make sure we got the prime spot for all the media. We were there along with 3 other balloons and we had a fantastic view as the torch came past.
Crowds started to gather amd lots of police on motorbikes rolled through. Then a whole convoy of sponsor’s vehicles with nice loud music and lots of people on the back dancing and shouting! We managed to get on the live BBC News streaming of the torch relay, both local and national BBC and ITV news, along with a mention on BBC Radio 1 and printed local media too.
