Bristol International Balloon Fiesta
Come August, Bristol is poppin’ for the hot air balloon fiesta (luckily, no balloons pop). The international festival is Europe’s largest annual ballooning event, and celebrates Bristol’s heritage of creating the first modern hot-air balloon in Western Europe. Now, the festival runs through the weekend, with grand send-offs, a night-glow, fireworks show, and more. It’s fun, free, and great for the whole family!
