Organisers of The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta say it was a success, despite flights being grounded on Sunday by bad weather.
The event featured four mass ascents - and even broke a world record, landing 90 balloons at the former chocolate factory in Keynsham. The take offs were watched by thousands although the night glows attracted the biggest crowds.

The final day of the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta got off to a wet start - with the morning mass assent cancelled because of the bad weather. Organiser say it has impacted on numbers - but it's too soon to give any official figures. A total of 325 balloons have flown over the four day event.
"We've not had a mass ascent this morning and we were very honest late last night to say that there wouldn't be a mass ascent so the crowds are reflective of that. But we've had a really great fiesta weekend. Thursday was a record crowd, Friday and Saturday were really very busy on site so we'll obviously have to do the counting up tomorrow morning once we've finished the event."
Organisers say due to the weather it's unlikely any balloons will fly on the last day of the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta. They are hoping to keep as many other events still on including the aerobatic displays.
Bad weather meant this morning's final mass ascent at the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta was cancelled. Organisers say the public car parks are operating fine but they are limiting the access for trailers. A meeting is being held this morning to discuss the rest of the day's plans.
