4 photos from the first day of Bristol Balloon Fiesta in 2006, the special shapes tether starting at 6pm. To gusty to launch on Thursday the 10th.
Mind where your putting that! The Chubb Ballon gives a little nudge to the boy perched on top the Tesco trolley.
Over subtlety isn't a problem for Tesco advertising on this balloon. Okay the shapes pretty good though.
The close up of the Tesco balloon gives a indication of the overall size too, its a big balloon. The biggest by volume at the balloon fiesta I am sure.
A few minutes of early morning sun breaks threw the clouds during the Friday 6am launch.
A long term Bristol supporter of the event the: Park Furnishers (external link) balloon, gets away in the sunlight.
Then back to overcast.
