Over 50 hot air balloons in mass launches, tethered day and night displays, the world’s largest continuous inflatable assault course, fireworks and lasers and a fairground including rides never before seen in York and some that have only arrived in the UK this year – that is the plan for York Balloon Fiesta 2019, which is returning to the Knavesmire from 27 to 29 September 2019 with a new team firing up the burner.
