The Darth Vader balloon character from Star Wars tethers at teatime, at the 41st Bristol International Balloon Fiesta 2019 which takes place from 08 - 11 August 2019. The evening mass ascent has been cancelled due to adverse windy weather, and the mass ascents for Friday have also been cancelled due to the weather forecast. For the first time in the event's history the first mass ascent of the fiesta was brought forward a day early due to the forecast for bad weather on Friday and Saturday. The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors and this year the Fiesta will be celebrating Icons of Bristol and look to highlight some of the things that make up the home of the International Balloon Fiesta. The event has joined forces with Aerospace Bristol to honour one of the city’s most famed creations, Concorde and Aardman Animations who are celebrating the 30th anniversary of Wallace and Gromit.
