Amazing hot air balloon festival


Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

It's 50 years since the modern hot air balloon was invented and to celebrate Hayley has been on a special flight in a balloon.

She said it didn't feel as though she was flying at all, as she was just "bobbing along" in the sky.

She also found out how balloon pilots use a really hot furnace to make the balloons rise.

Watch her amazing journey here!
