Bristol Balloon Festival

August 8th, 2008

Last night was the start of the Bristol Balloon Festival. Its based at Ashton court ever year and there are balloons from all over the world.

We went to the night glow last night. The night glow is where all the balloons are tethered down, and the balloon crew light their balloons up in time to music. Everyone "ooohs" and "aaaahs". Its just a really great atmosphere. Just when the balloons finish doing their fancy stuff, a fireworks show sets off and everyone carrys on "ooohing" and "aaaahing".
There's a fair at the festival too. I don't know what it is about fairs, I just don't like them, but everyone else loved it =)
I just wish I had enough to time to go back there this weekend with my tripod, but its just not possible.
Maybe next year...
(I'm sure thats what I said last year...)

I didn't get that many pictures, but still...Enjoy! =)
