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

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. 

My mobile is 07897 882993 if you need to contact me for directions I'll do my best to help.
