In our opinion, the term ‘balloon festival’ severely understates what Cheshire Balloon Fiesta offers. We’re talking spectacular balloon launches and masses of glowing vistas, the best in live music and all the activities you could ever wish for all the family, all within the grounds of the beautiful Bolesworth Castle in Cheshire, just over an hour away from Manchester city centre.
This weekend (August 4-6), a whole host of wonderful balloon shows will be taking place, with the Fiesta celebrating all things air-filled and colourful. The incredible line up for the weekend’s musical performances include The Vamps, Sister Sledge, Scouting For Girls, Gabrielle and so many more, ensuring all music lovers out there are kept thoroughly entertained.
The first ever Cheshire Balloon Fiesta will also be a great day out for the whole family, with all sorts of fairground rides. Expect a ‘Raver Tots Big Top‘ to burn off some steam, the chance to join the circus activities, and so much more to keep the kids entertained, on top of the balloons, of course.
There will even be the opportunity to ride some of the hot air balloons, because what kind of balloon fiesta would it be without that? This is an extra special treat, and tickets will be available separately to the festival tickets.
Adults, don’t fret, because there will plenty available to keep you entertained too. From craft workshops to street food and drink areas, you’ll be able to come away from Cheshire Balloon Fiesta with an extra set of skills, and perhaps something you made earlier, as well as having tasted some of the best local grub around.
If you fancy dancing the night away all weekend long, watching glowing balloons sail away into the sunset, enjoying a pint in the company of your nearest and dearest, get your tickets here.
Cheshire Balloon Fiesta will take place on August 4 – 6, at Bolesworth Castle, Cheshire, CH3 9JJ.
