Virgin Balloon Flights celebrates the Bristol Balloon Fiesta

This weekend saw the 39th annual Bristol Balloon Fiesta, and Virgin Balloon Flights were there celebrating in style.

With hundreds of hot air balloons flying over the city across the weekend, the sky was full of colour. And Virgin Balloon Flights had a special guest joining them.

JB Gill, of JLS fame, was with the Virgin Balloon Flights team and took a very special flight on Friday with his wife Chloe, which was broadcast live on Facebook.

The Virgin Balloon Flights team took some incredible photos at the weekend - including some stunning views across Bristol.

In total, 234 balloons took flight over the entire weekend. With maiden flights, engagements and balloons shaped liked Minions and Queen's Guards (amongst others!). And now begins the countdown to the 40th anniversary celebrations next year...

Take a look at more of their images on the Virgin Balloon Flights Facebook page, and book your flight on the Virgin Balloon Flights website.
