We hope that the weather will be kind to all festival attendees and that it will allow us and the balloons to give rides to the visitors from far and wide
If anyone takes a ride in a hot air balloon and can take an aerial shot of the railway we would very much like to have this to put on our facebook page, website etc. So please, please, post your photos on the FB page.
We have just about finished extending the raised track and do not have a new image from above the site
Thank you to all our many supporters and we hope to see you over this festival weekend.
From all your chums at the Wee Train.
Strathaven Balloon Festival Parking
There will be NO Festival parking within Strathaven itself and the Festival would ask that drivers do not park on verges and roadsides but use the official parking locations. This helps the flow of traffic and also ensures access for emergency vehicles and public service buses.
Please follow signs along the A71 (from Stonehouse and Darvel), A723 and A726 to the park and ride.
**Car Parking is £5 per car payable at the carpark entrance**
(card or cash)
