The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is calling on the people of Bristol to help bring an incredible special shaped hot air balloon home to fly over the city for the very first time.

The iconic Darth Vader balloon was built in Bristol by Cameron Balloons in 2007 but has never flown in the city despite appearing around the world in the likes of Australia, the United States, China and Malaysia.

The crowd funding campaign aims to raise £10,000 in an all-or-nothing project to pay for the balloon to attend the event and help raise the funds needed to stage this iconic, international event on the city’s doorstep.

In return for your donations, there is an incredible list of rewards to befit this unique and much-loved event including hot air balloon flights, a Night Glow crew experience, VIP access to hospitality areas and the arena, access to the arena for selfie opportunities with the Darth Vader balloon, brewery tours, balloon-themed products and limited edition works of art.
