Balloon festival success

Balloon festival success

The two day Telford Balloon Fiesta is in its second year and has attracted around 50,000 visitors from all over the Midlands according to Telford & Wrekin Council.

The show included a Strongman competition, and the highlight last night of the balloon burners lighting up the canopies to music.

A couple of interesting diversions included one of the Red Devils display team using a reserve parachute and this Panasonic battery Balloon coming down by Aldi at Snedshill caught on camera by Kieran Jones. Luckily, everyone was OK.
