Bristol Balloon Fiesta 2010



Balloon Fiesta: Thursday's glow

The Bristol Balloon Fiesta wrapped up with a Red Arrows display and mass balloon ascent on Sunday.

The event did not enjoy the best luck with weather in 2010 with wind and rain grounding flights on Thursday and Saturday.

But mass ascents did take to the Bristol skies on Friday morning and Sunday afternoon.

And thousands of visitors to Ashton Court estate enjoyed the Night Glows on Thursday and Saturday.

The 2010 also marked 50 years since the first modern hot-air balloon was developed in the USA.
