A high time at festival.
BALLOONISTS from all over the world took to the skies above Bristol yesterday.
More than 150 balloons are taking part in the three-day International Balloon Fiesta, which includes mass lift-offs and a spectacular night glow finale and fireworks display each evening.
Highlights included a Despicable Me Minion and the world's largest special shape balloon, a galleon sponsored by Captain Morgan rum.
