Bristol Balloon Fiesta Photos

We gave the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta some Heart with spectacular mass ascents, breathtaking night glows, stunning aerobatic displays and the Heart alfresco area.

The weather was kind to the thousands of people that attended across four days of free family fun at Ashton Court. There were plenty of mass ascents despite some windy conditions and 2012 saw the arrival of some new special shapes. Thursday night the 'Best of British' NightGlow got everyone feeling patriotic with a firework finale. Record crowds turned out on Saturday night for 'Bristol's Biggest Party' NightGlow hosted by Heart.
