Bristol Balloon Fiesta 2021: The latest launch in pictures


The latest balloon launch as part of the Bristol Balloon Fiesta took place earlier tonight (August 14) as the city-wide celebration continues.

After no flights were possible on Friday night, Saturday saw a return to business as usual with balloons taking to the skies over the city earlier this evening.

Around 50 balloons took off from Ashton Court this evening, with a launch also going ahead in Queen Square.

The balloons began to take off shortly before 7pm, with the crafts heading in the direction of Filton.

Viewers across the city have been transfixed with their eyes on the skies to see the displays that have been able to go ahead, with balloons filling the sky over the last fortnight.

Numerous viewing locations have been nominated across the city to watch the balloons as they take to the skies, these being Bristol Harbourside, Brandon Hill, Castle Park, Troopers Hill, Eastville Park and Kingswood Park.

A final decision has yet to be confirmed on whether another flight will go ahead on Sunday morning (August 15) – the final day of Fiesta Fortnight.
