As Bristol prepares for another 'Night Glow' at the Balloon Fiesta take a look at Kylie's footage of Friday's event:
It has been perfect weather for the 37th Balloon fiesta. The mass ascent took place early this morning in bright sunshine with around 100 balloons taking to the skies around the city.
Today was the first full day of the Bristol International Balloon fiesta. Our weatherman Alex Beresford was lucky enough to go up in one of the hundred or so balloons taking part in this morning's mass ascent - none other than Stuart the Minion.
The Bristol Balloon Fiesta is Europe's biggest hot air balloon festival and over half a million visitors are expected to descend upon the Ashton Court Estate this weekend. There are seven mass ascents in total as well as the famous Night Glow, which took place last night and will also be held tomorrow night as well.
We've put together a montage of what's happened so far:

One of our team was up bright and early this morning, taking an early balloon flight over the city, for the start of the Bristol Balloon Fiesta 2015.
Laura took to the skies in the Jones Lang LaSalle balloon and managed to take some incredible aerial shots of the city.
Here are just some of the pictures she took for you to enjoy:
The first solar-powered hot air balloon in the world has made its debut flight at the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta.
Sunny weather meant the hybrid ballon could make its maiden flight this morning, to mark the city’s status as the UK’s first European Green Capital.
The balloon is partially powered by the sun and a conventional propane burner.
Constructed by Cameron Balloons in Bristol, it has been made using panels of fabric, which are specifically designed to soak in the sun’s rays.
The Bristol Balloon Fiesta launched in style with its famous Night glow opener.
Thousands of people made the trip to the Ashton Court Estate to watch 40 hot air balloons being lit up in time to music.
And our very own Kylie Pentelow was there to soak up the atmosphere...
The mass ascent has just been given the go ahead and balloons are beginning to inflate.
