Last year, the organizers of the annual Philippine International Hot Air Baloon (PIHBF) announced the cancellation of this year's (2014) balloon festival. The much-awaited Hot Air Balloon Fiesta is scheduled on February 12-15, 2015 instead.
Like me, everyone is clamoring for this aviation event that’s why the Department of Tourism announced they replace it a new hot air balloon festival called "The Philippine Friendship Balloon Festival 2014".
Festival Date: April 10 to 13, 2014
Festival Venue: PAF Hangar Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga, Philippines
Entrance Fee- P100
Lead by DOT, the new Hot Air Balloon Fiesta is set to happen April 10 to 13, 2014 in Clark Pampanga, with the theme "It's more than just hot air. It's a celebration of life in times of adversity."
The Philippine Friendship Balloon Festival 2014 will feature colorful and giant balloons, sky diving, ultralight show, street dancing, kite flying, flairtending, game shows, car shows, cultural presentations, fireworks display, among others.
Tropa, I'm pretty sure this festival is also worth watching. The question.... Is this new balloon festival is also extravagant just like the original Hot Air Balloon Fiesta?
Anyway, I'm still looking forward for the 19th Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in 2015. Hopefully, it's bigger and even better.
The Philippine Friendship Balloon Festival 2014 is presented by Department of Tourism, Clark Development Corporation, Clark International Airport Corporation and PAF Air Force City.
