Bristol Balloon Fiesta 2018

When I go to the Bristol Balloon Fiesta I buy close parking and that has to be booked a few weeks in advance.

Luckily I chose this mornings ascent and I think it'll be the only mass ascent that will take place this year due to the weather (feel sorry for for others that had other plans to attend).

Some pics from a perfect morning for balloons..
