The organisers of Northampton Balloon Festival have confirmed it will be held again this year at Billing Aquadrome.

A spokesman said the 27th annual festival will be held from Friday August 19 to Sunday August 21.

“With morning and evening flights, night glow on Saturday, balloon tethering and meet the pilots, plus all of the usual fun of the event,” he said.

“This continues with the support provided by Billing Aquadrome for the last seven years, since the event moved from the Racecourse in 2009.

“The balloonists are excited about the annual event giving both local and others from further afield the chance to flying above the Northamptonshire countryside,” the spokesman added.
