Don’t miss York’s first Balloon Fiesta, which is all set to be a spectacular sight across the city. As well as 50 fantastic balloons, there’ll be food stalls, a beer tent, fairground rides and other entertainment all taking place on the Knavesmire.
There are two balloon launches, morning (Saturday and Sunday, 7.15am) and afternoon (4.30pm). For something really special, don’t miss the Night-Glow performance on the Saturday night, where a few balloons will be tethered and will light up the sky to a soundtrack. On the SUnday, Yorkshire Air Ambulance will be flying in, and there’s even the chance for kids to sit in the helicopter! The event is free and it’s £6 for parking, which is limited. Keep an eye on the event’s Facebook page for updates.
