Up, Up, and Away!
One of Europe's largest balloon festivals was set for lift-off yesterday, with nearly half a million enthusiasts gathering to watch hundreds of balloons take to the skies -- weather permitting.
The annual Bristol International Balloon Fiesta takes place at the Ashton Court Estate until Sunday and is expected to attract between 400,000 and 500,000 visitors over the course of the four days.
Traditional highlights include the dawn and dusk mass balloon ascents, where over one hundred balloons of different shapes, sizes and colours will glide through the skies.
