York Balloon Fiesta To Return Despite Traffic Problems



From BBC News.

A balloon festival blamed for bringing traffic in York to a standstill is to return to the city.

Last year’s York Balloon Fiesta attracted 40,000 visitors, but there were complaints of gridlock on roads and delays to buses.

Former Make it York director Steve Brown previously said festival bosses were uncertain about returning.

The event has since been confirmed for 2019, with a “better plan” to tackle traffic promised.

Crowds were treated to mass balloon launches each day, balloon night glow events and a firework display.
