Llangollen will once again be the home to the only hot air balloon festival in Wales, creating a spectacular sight over the stunning Dee Valley and beyond over the weekend 17/18 September 2016. The town has been a Mecca for balloons of all shapes and sizes since 1997 although this year will see a number of new attractions. There’s the inaugural Wales International Balloon Festival Great Balloon Race, which is guaranteed to generate a spectacular site as pilots set off in pursuit of the ‘hare.’ The Red Devils parachute display team will also be making a controlled jump for the first time at a major ballooning event.
Plenty more attractions will be on show for all the family to enjoy. Head on down to Llangollen for a wonderful weekend out.
