COLOURFUL hot air balloons are to fill the sky in Hereford next year as part of a two-day festival.

The Herefordshire and South Wales Balloon Festival Weekend takes place at Hereford Racecourse on September 7 and 8. 

Tickets, costing £25 for adults and £15 for children, or £40 for a family, are on sale here

The magical moment will be when the sun sets, with the balloons lights up the racecourse as part of a mesmerising night glow event.


There will be plenty of food stalls during the weekend, as well as thrilling rides and live entertainment. 

There will also be a dedicated kids' zone with fun activities, face painting, and even a mini hot air balloon display. 

Hot air balloon festivals are very popular, with many taking place across the country. 

Other similar events happening next year include one in Worcester on June 21 and 22.
