Flying High: Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, Clark, Pampanga

#HotAirBalloonFiesta is an annual event held at #ClarkFreeport in Pampanga. From Feb 11-14, this anticipated event is packed with activities on a daily basis. Hot air balloons take off every morning at around 6:30 AM depending on wind conditions. The next opportunity to see the balloons is in the afternoon at around 5:30 PM as they fly in, if wind conditions is conducive. The balloons will also be tethered on Saturday and Sunday night for the night glow. Aside from hot air balloons, which everyone is anticipating about, there are also other mind-blowing exhibitions like paragliding, skydiving, the infamous twin (paragliders) brothers doing their annual stuff, Ultralight/Microlight flights and Flour Bombing, Helicopter Flights Display and more. The place was packed, as expected, that Saturday during our visit, and no need to worry about where to eat, every single area of the place was brimming with food stalls from Jollibee, McDo, a variety of hotdog stands mushrooming in the area and some souvenir shops, selling their wares from cute replicas of (hot air) balloons, mugs and a variety of t-shirts. It was covered by ABS-CBN network, so expect too a dose of entertainment. It was, should I say, my first experience but it won't be my last. Enjoy! Light and Love, everyone!
