last night i went to the nightglow at bristol balloon fiesta, and this morning i got up at 5am and went with my friends megan and alice to see the 6am launch. and this year they could actually take off!

the nightglow - all the balloons inflate but stay tethered, and glow using their burners in time to some cheesy music.

the fantastic fireworks after the nightglow.

paths crossing!

starting to inflate

an excited alice - she came with me last year but the wind was all wrong for the balloons to take off.

megan pointing at a balloon!

very classy.

i'm still awake!

some of the novelty shapes took off this morning too.

in flight.

a very brave man.

i really like the pattern on his balloon.

me and megan grinning with joy.

100 balloons took off this morning!


i really like the layers of colour and pattern in this one.

up at the edge of the arena.

these crazy shaped ones flew right over our heads!

alice and balloons.

monster balloon is hungry. monster balloon will eat you.

some still waiting to inflate.

it was a beautiful morning... and after the balloons we had a big veggie sausage and egg bap and went home for a cup of tea.

Looks like it was a lot of fun! I like the pattern on that balloon too.
