Preparations under way for Bristol Balloon Fiesta

We’re so excited about the Bristol Balloon Fiesta! The free four-day festival, which is Europe’s largest hot air balloon event, takes place from August 11 until 14 at Ashton Court in Bristol and preparations are now under way.

As an official supplier of the event we have loaned Richmond Event Management Ltd (REM), which is helping organise the Fiesta, a Nissan X-Trail to use. Members of staff from REM are currently onsite getting everything ready.

Staff from our Cribbs Causeway dealership and also our Used Supercentre on Pennywell Road will be at the Fiesta with the full range of new Nissan vehicles. We will also be handing out goody bags, free balloons to children and free glow sticks before the Nightglow and Firework Finale on Saturday, August 13.

As well as this, at our stand we will have a Nissan GT-R supercar simulator, which people can ride for £3 a go as well as a free prize draw to win a fantastic balloon ride in partnership with Bristol Balloons.

To add to all this, anyone who purchases a new Nissan vehicle during the event will receive a free balloon ride as a complimentary gift.
