Thursday 6th August
The Fiesta’s first day opens at midday with hot air balloons tethering through the afternoon. As we reach 6pm, our pilots are briefed on the weather for the first mass ascent of the Fiesta. At 9pm as dusk sets 25 of our hot air balloons turn into huge lights bulbs, glowing in time to our specially commissioned soundtrack. Our evening finishes with a fantastic firework finale.
