Hot Air Balloon Festival, Clark, Pampanga

Share this article: Facebook Twitter Stumble Upon Digg This Reddit

This is the 17th Hot Air Balloon Festival in Clark, Pampanga but this is our first time  to see it. We've been planning a couple of years now but never did.

We went to Clark Friday night and stayed at one of the villas in Mimosa. Very early Saturday morning, we went to Clark Air Base for the Hot Air Balloon Festival.

We got there at 6:00 in the morning and the entrances were packed, they should add more entrances, or maybe separate entrances from Ticket Booths.

The balloons started inflating at quarter to 7.

And started flying at 7:00 am. Right on schedule.

A bit of trivia, which I just heard from the announcer, hot air balloons can not be directed, and are at the mercy of the winds.

There were so many people in the Clark Airfield surrounding the Hot Air Balloons, unless you camped there overnight, its very difficult to get close. Although I was able to sneak myself closer.

Some pictures with the family.

Photo-ops with the base equipment and personnel.

Soon after the Hot Air Balloons flew out of sight, we went outside Clark Air Base and had breakfast at Binulo Kapampangan Restaurant. The Hot Chocolate Carabao's Milk is a MUST HAVE!

Right after breakfast, we went back to Mimosa for a dip in the pool.

The Hot Air Balloon Festival lasts upto the evening. During the day, they have shows and stunts lasting upto night time. We just stayed for the Hot Air Balloon flights and didn't stay all day as the sun was searing hot and our kids wanted to go swimming.

You can get yourself stamped so you can come back after leaving the base premises.

Marcel   I believe it is to promote tourism in the area and also to attract foreign hot-air balloon enthusiasts.

Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing
without having side-effects , people could take a signal.
Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

You could certainly see your skills in the work you write.
The arena hopes for more passionate writers such as you who
aren't afraid to say how they believe. At all times go
after your heart.

minecraft   I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your
website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text
for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could
space it out better?
