Highly recommend. Excellent weekend, loads of balloons on Friday and Saturday and at the night glows on all 3 nights. Plenty of food places or bring a picnic, and everyone on stage over the 3 days was brilliant 🤩 Loved every minute!

Brilliant event for the whole family. Mass balloon launches, night glow to music and a fair. There’s something spectacular about watching them launch as well as being in the area simply to watch them fly past, some just colourful others as dragons 🐉, pirate 🏴‍☠️ ships or a passing frog 🐸
