Bristol Balloon Festival is a famous event in this city. It is called Bristol Balloon Festival. It is held every August for three days. We arrived in Bristol yesterday on the first day of the opening of the 2016 Balloon Festival. Before 6 p.m., we followed the crowd to the activity site, and saw people from all over the UK on the grassland leading their homes already "camping", a lively scene. Temporary large-scale entertainment facilities and catering stalls around it also make the atmosphere here more warm. But at 6 o'clock, when the event is expected to start, the announcer's voice comes from the loudspeaker, telling us that because of the weather, the high-altitude wind is too strong, and today's hot-air balloon activity is cancelled. We regret it. But no one complained or complained. Many people began to leave, and many people continued to wait for the fireworks show that started at 9 o'clock.
Bristol Hot Balloon Festival began in 1979. It has 35 years to date. As one of Britain's five major outdoor events, Bristol Hot Balloon Festival is a world-class event. It attracts 500,000 tourists and hundreds of balloon driving teams at home and abroad every year. The local economic stimulus has reached 13 million pounds.
