In the English civil parish of Somerset, you will find the small village of Long Ashton. It boasts beautiful landscaped grounds which are used for walks, golfing and mountain biking by residents.
Bristol International Balloon Fiesta
While its population is quite small at around 5,000 people, in the month of August it plays host to the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta which brings in crowds of over 100,000 people. Over the four days of the festival, teams from all over the world bring their hot air balloons here and together they ascend with up to 100 other balloons. The Fiesta started in 1979 with only 29 balloons and around 1000 spectators but now is one of the largest events of its kind in Europe. Also, make sure to look out for balloons that are shaped like objects such as Rupert the Bear, Tesco Trolley, a beaver and a kiwi.
A popular attraction of the festival is the ‘night glow’ where the balloons are inflated but not launched and the balloons glow as if they are light bulbs or Chinese lanterns. After the night glow, there is a fireworks display and music. Throughout the day, there is a daily program of entertainment and children’s activities to complement the mass balloon ascents.
