The countdown has begun to one of the most exciting festivals that will be making a debut in west Wales in 2024 – the Wales Balloon Festival - which will be taking place at the Carmarthen Show Ground on June 29 and 30.

Organisers are stating that the ‘skies of Wales will come alive’ as scores of hot air balloons descend onto this corner of Wales for an all-out extravaganza of colour.

More details about this incredible event are expected to be announced over the coming months.

“We are working tirelessly to bring you a festival that will leave you in awe and create memories that will last a lifetime,” commented the organisers.

“So whether you're a balloon enthusiast or simply looking for a unique and unforgettable experience, the Wales Balloon Festival is not to be missed.”

As well as having a chance to watch the balloons as they fly through the skies, visitors can also marvel at the artistry of the balloon pilots as they navigate the winds.

There will also be a range of exciting activities and entertainments including live music performances to delicious food and beverage vendors.

“We are committed to creating a safe and enjoyable experience for all attendees, and we will be working closely with local authorities to ensure compliance with all necessary regulations and guidelines," added the organisers.
