York Balloon Fiesta 2017

The last weekend in September York had the experience of seeing the York Balloon Fiesta.

Over 50 hot air balloons took to the sky over three days. The programme had morning and evening flights and live music, stalls and a fairground during the day.

The event also helped raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Despite the rain over the weekend, it didn’t stop people from watching the spectacular event.



Saturday evening saw thousands of people watching the Talk Talk ultra-optic fibre night glow which lit up the sky’s and the balloon pilots showed off their talents by lighting the balloons to a sequence to music which wowed the crowds.
