Bristol International Balloon Fiesta
I had the chance to go to the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta.
This is a 4 days event, you have a lot to see : Balloon Demonstration, Model Aircraft… I went to the 6PM Mass Hot Air Balloon Launch (But there is also a 6AM Launch + breakfast, I am sure it is really cool too!)
I you can stay at night, don’t miss the nightglows !
There were 500 000 people, it was huge! The traffic in Bristol was very bad. It is a one hour walk between the train station and the fiesta place, but it was better then staying in the bus waiting (there is a bus every 10 minutes from the train station but there is too much people on the roads, the bus can’t really drive)
Also really nice to see :
