Telford Balloon Fiesta
Written by Harvey Williamson on September 14, 2020
Telford’s skies are once again set to be filled with amazing colourful hot air balloons for residents to see from their own homes. This year’s Telford
This year’s Telford Balloon Fiesta was cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions and with people’s safety being of the upmost importance we are still unable to put on a large scale event but there is something we can do…Hot air balloons are planned to be launched from secret locations across the borough on four occasions over the weekend.
Lift off is planned for early morning and evening on both days but as always is weather dependant so we cannot guarantee they will happen. The sites will not be published publicly so therefore viewing lift offs is not an option on this year.We are asking that residents join in with the fun by ‘Looking Up’ from the safety of their own homes and do not gather in groups.
Please share your photos and videos in this event so we can make this a real community event and work out where the balloons are. Launch locations will be chosen to try and maximise the chance of as many of people seeing a balloon from home but also please note balloons go where the wind takes them so again no guarantee and at no point should people chase the balloons as this is NOT SAFE!
