As we prepare to take part in the fast approaching 2019 Bristol Balloon Fiesta, anticipation for the event is reaching new heights by the day. Aerosaurus Balloons have enjoyed taking part in the annual fiesta for many years and can’t wait to be part of the action from Thursday 8th August to Sunday 11th August.
We previously brought you up to speed with plans for The 40th Bristol Balloon Fiesta and we can safely say that we all thoroughly enjoyed the landmark fiesta. Now, we have everything you need to know about the forthcoming fiesta, and hope to see as many of you there as possible.
Our associate company Bailey Balloons often fly over Bristol as one of their main flight locations, yet it is always a special moment when, as a whole, we set off as part of a mass ascent at the fiesta. If you haven’t done so already, discover our Bristol Balloon Fiesta flight voucher.
Join us in an unrivalled flying experience and receive champagne, a personalised flight certificate and a special flight pack as part of the package. Being part of a mass ascent in what is the grandest balloon festival in the world is quite something!
First held in 1978, the Bristol Balloon Fiesta is hosted against the stunning backdrop of Ashton Court Gate. The Bristol Balloon Fiesta is not only the height of the UK ballooning season, but is Europe’s largest meeting of hot air balloons, with a staggering 130 balloons taking flight over the four days. Hot air balloon enthusiasts from around the globe come to take part in the event.
The sight of a multitude of balloons floating into the clear blue summer skies is one to behold, and an image that, at Aerosaurus, we hold close to our hearts all year round. As a free event, organisers encourage as many people to come and enjoy the take-offs, landings and everything in between throughout the four days.
As ever, there is a wide variety of hot air ballooning events planned for the fiesta. We have provided an official breakdown of each day, so that you don’t miss a thing on the day(s) you plan to attend this grand scale hot air balloon experience:
These are the main attractions outlined for each day (weather permitting) although there will also be numerous other events and activities for people to enjoy whilst walking round the fiesta. We for one can’t wait for another year of exciting interactions with Ballooning experts and enthusiasts from all four corners of the community.
Look out for Aerosaurus during the festival celebrations, both on the ground and high in the skies!

We can’t wait for this year’s fiesta and hope that if you can’t make it, you’re able to witness this majestic spectacle from afar.
