The skies of York are set to be transformed this September. From Friday 29th September to Sunday 1st October, the city welcomes its first hot air balloon festival. A total of 50 hot air balloons, from all across the UK, will fly across York. A fun packed festival-style weekend will be taking place on the ground. The spectacular display of colourful balloons will be visible from the Knavesmire, home to York Racecourse. On the Saturday evening there will be a dazzling Ultra Fibre Optic Night-Glow performance.
