Burnley Balloon Festival 2009

The epic Burnley Balloon Festival reached for the skies again last year in its 9th successive year.

The festival dominates Towneley Park over the weekend of the 31st July to the 2nd August, drawing in tens of thousands of people.

The event is the biggest of its kind in Lancashire and the country as a whole and attracts tens of thousands of people each year

As well as the gargantuan towering balloons there were fireworks and fairground attractions to entertain the whole family.

Star attraction of the show was the evenings choreographed day glow extravaganza which illuminated the sky in a blaze of yellow fire, as the balloons belch out coordinated flames all to the sound of music
