The skies of York will again be transformed by a fantastic array of colour and shapes as 50 hot air balloons fly across the city for the York Balloon Fiesta.
Spectators will be able to enjoy a free festival-style weekend packed with family friendly activities from mass balloon launches to night glows after dark.
The spectacular display of colourful balloons will be visible from Knavesmire.
New for this year’s fiesta, sponsored by York’s Ultra Fibre Optic from TalkTalk, will be a dazzling balloon night glow on both Friday and Saturday evenings, plus a firework display on the Saturday night.
There will also be a funfair, birds of prey show, children’s activities and entertainment, along with live music from the Hyde Park Brass Band and local band Bluephunk, a beer tent and tasty street food stalls from local Yorkshire vendors.
