Builders merchant Kellaway Building Supplies has been chosen as sponsor of this year’s Saturday Night Glow at the 34th Bristol International Balloon Fiesta.
The Bristol company, which has 10 branches including an outlet at Turnpike Yard, Bath, has been a supporter of the Fiesta for many years and a member of its 100 Club since 2009. Each year premier sponsorships are put up for grabs and members of the 100 Club are entered into a draw for their chance to win one. At the draw dinner on Friday night, Kellaway were randomly selected to sponsor the Saturday Night Glow on August 11th.
Chris Parker, sales development and marketing manager for Kellaway, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to support such an iconic event. It's our 30th anniversary this year since opening our first branch on Kellaway Avenue, so we’re really proud as a local company to be associated with this local, yet prestigious, international event.”
Bristol’s Balloon Fiesta is the largest event of its kind in Europe and attracts 500,000 visitors each year, many of them from outside the city. The spectacular nightglow has become one of the key events, featuring 30 or so balloons glowing in time to music followed by a fantastic firework finale.
The Balloon Fiesta will be at Ashton Court from Thursday 9 to Sunday 12 August.
