Eastbourne's Hot Air Balloon Festival - review

Sadly due to continued high winds, we didn't actually see any hot air balloons at the Air Balloon Festival on the Sunday but there was still plenty of entertainment.  They had a fun fair and a few stalls, pony rides, dog show, live music, a Harvey's bar with their beautiful and ever popular Dray horses and The Brighton Kite Flyers were there displaying some of their epic kites (at least they were glad of the wind).

Luckily we had taken along the twins' kites we bought at the Kite Festival I wrote about last month and we found a large space near the Superman kite to have another go at flying them.  Kalyan had an absolute ball with Daddy and Grampy helping to fly the Octopus kites while Priya sat watching with Granny before insisting it was snack time!

The Festival was free although you had to pay for certain things, it's a shame the weather let it down and the balloons couldn't fly, I hope they do it again next year as it seemed really well organised and could be an amazing spectacle with all the balloons.
