York Balloon Fiesta 2019 – It’s back!

Up, up and away! York Balloon Fiesta is back at York Knavesmire for 2019, from 27th to 29th September. There’ll be over 50 hot air balloons over the course of the weekend – some flying, others tethered – as well as a funfair, entertainment, laser and firework display. Weather permitting, the highlights include:

Friday night Night Glow: 9pm – 9.20pm

Saturday mass balloon launch: 4.45pm – 5.45pm

Saturday firework and laser show: 9.50pm – 10pm

Sunday Owl Adventures Bird Flying Show: 2.15pm to 2.45pm
