Hello Balloons

Posted 11th July 2024

Up, up and away!

The Northampton Balloon Festival is back at the town’s Racecourse (August 16-18) and ready to delight thousands at the family spectacle.
Enjoy lots of live arena entertainment; a circus workshop will wow, a funfair will thrill and there will be plenty of trade stalls to investigate. Wonder at the majesty of the birds of prey, and plenty of food and drink stalls are set to keep your energy levels up.

At sunset, the hot air balloons will glow in a true spectacle of light, and then, when the skies have been filled with the balloons, you can keep your eyes trained upwards to enjoy the fireworks that will follow.

‘Don’t miss this magical celebration that promises unforgettable moments for the whole family. Join us in Northampton for a weekend of high-flying joy!’ urge organisers.

Visit once and never again will ‘a load of hot air’ have the same meaning. This is a gem in the town’s annual programme.
