The festival has announced there will be a dog show, a flower show and a market on site too. All we need is decent weather and we can go blipping mad
The organisers have set up a website:
Their Facebook page is:
The Eastbourne International Hot Air Balloon Festival
Hopefully be there.
Not long to go now! There is a cafe in the park opposite the lake which will be suitable as a meeting place. Apparently flight times are dawn and dusk (weather depending) on Saturday and dawn on Sunday. I can't see me being there for first light so I'll be there about 10am.
The Facebook page is The Official Eastbourne International Hot Air Balloon Festival. Have a look to see the lengthy list of all the other attractions there.
I don't know anything about parking facilities on the day unfortunately. Hopefully the college car park next door will be open. There is a lot of on street parking nearby. Hampden Park Station is walking distance for those who would like to park in Eastbourne station and ride the one stop on the train.
