August 21st 2011 : Green Light for Balloons in Northampton
For the first time in many years at The Northampton Balloon Festival, the Balloons have flown every morning and evening so far.
Several Balloons braved the windy conditions on Friday evening and around 20 balloons flew Saturday morning and evening.
The nightglow was a huge sucess on Saturday evening with thousands in attendance and for the first time at Billing Aquadrom we had Balloons inflated during the glow.
About 15 balloons took off between the Showers on Sunday morning heading towards the east of Northamptonshire.
The next pilot briefing is at 6pm, remember, if you have any pictures from this years event, please e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org
