If your in Bristol at this time i highly recommend going Jun 08, 2011
Bristol Balloon Fiesta in Ashton Court is the biggest ballon festival in Europe.

Usually the Fiesta starts in the second week of August on a Thursday night with a night glow. This is when it gets dark and they light up the ballons in time to music music. This is a must see.

Then daily from the Friday morning until the Sunday night at 0600 and 1800 (weather permitting) over 100 Balloons different shapes and sizes ascend from Asthon Court into the skys of Bristol. There are Ballons in shapes of anything between the Churchill dog and a motor bike.

If you dont get chance to goto the fiesta itself all you need to do is look up into the sky and see for yourself
