The Clifton Suspension Bridge is the icon of Bristol and the South West, and the hot air balloons take the scenery to the whole new level. Bright colours, familiar shapes, and wonderful clarity are sure to please the viewers eye! The Balloon Festival 2013 is only a couple months away (8-11th August) and once again it promises to be an extraordinary event. The morning balloon ascents are well worth getting up - and the sight can be usually enjoyed from most parts of the city. The daytime promises continuos entertainment in Ashton court, including the all loved Red Arrows acrobatic flight performances. In the evenings, once again the balloon launches will be the centre of the stage - and the crowds will be waiting in Clifton for the balloons to go over the bridge. Finally, on Saturday the balloonists perform a night glow to the iconic tunes of music followed by a spectacular fireworks display. Overall, the event provides a great entertainment for the whole family whatever the expectations. Let's only hope for a good weather.
