Strathaven Balloon Festival Annual local event
This year’s Strathaven Balloon Festival took place over the weekend of the 24th – 26th August, with over 15,000 visitors to Strathaven over those few days. This local attraction saw hot air balloonists travel from all over the UK and from Belgium to our award-winning Strathaven Park. Balloon flights are weather dependent but 25 flights went up over the course of Saturday, a beautiful sunny and still summer’s day, and could be seen flying overhead from various points in and around the town and surrounding villages. Waking up to the gentle roar of a hot air balloon flying overhead is quite something! Following the massive popularity of the event, the Balloon Festival committee are already looking at Park & Ride options for next year. We’re looking forward to being open for the Strathaven Balloon Festival 2019!
