An exciting ballooning and aerial extravaganza taking place on the Friday 11th, 12th and 13th of July at the combined Tiverton High School and Petroc campus on Bolham Road, Tiverton EX16 6SH.
More than 30 balloons are planned to take to the skies on the evening of Friday the 11th inflating from approximately 18:30, and from approximately 7:00 and 18:30 on both Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th of July (all subject to weather). On Friday and Saturday there will be evening entertainment provided by a hot air balloon 'Night Glow', from 21:30, where balloons will give a fire and light show, choreographed to music alongside fire jugglers and a lantern procession. On Saturday and Sunday afternoons subject to weather there will be balloons tethering (i.e tied to the ground) and spectacular displays plus competitions involving mixed teams of public and balloonists, and the opportunity for visitors to closely view the balloons and talk to pilots and crew.
There will be catering for all tastes as well as bars, picnic areas, trade stands, 2 music stages, main areana displays and children's entertainment on-site. For more details and timings please visit our Whats Happening page.
Please note that no dogs will be allowed at the Festival, except for Guide Dogs, owing to the site being a school campus.
