Stewart Park played host to the Balloons and Tunes festival this weekend in Middlesbrough. The event brought together an array of hot air balloons that were tethered to the ground through the event and whilst blustery conditions made it difficult for the balloons to operate for too long a few of them still managed it through the day and they all had more success as evening approached and the wind dropped allowing the ‘Night Glow’ event to take place.
This saw the balloons firing their burners in a choreographed display alongside music and was quite dramatic to see. Along with the balloons there were fairground rides in abundance and a number of popular tribute acts including Rihanna, Pink and Beyonce performed at certain times through the day for the thousands of visitors who attended the festival.
