International Balloon Fiesta

If you're anywhere near Bristol tomorrow, make a note to look up to the sky. If you're lucky, you'll see hundreds of hot air balloons gracefully floating by as part of the annual .

From Aug 6 to 9, the woodland area of Ashton Court in Bristol is set to become a playground for balloon enthusiasts as well as day trippers enjoying extreme air shows, stalls and a petting zoo. If you can't make it to the grounds, but are in the area, check the skies at 6am and 6pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday when 100 balloons will be heading towards the clouds. Thursday and Saturday evening also features a fireworks show as well as a Red Arrows display and parachutists jumping from helicopters.
