Yesterday was the last night of the 16th Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Festival at Clark Field Pampangga and of course I was there. It was the perfect day to be there as it was the final night of this year and a weekend festival of everything that flies.
The finale night was the best night since its the night before Valentines Day, they wowed the spectators with an awesome night glow of the hot air balloons. The ended with a lovely fireworks display!
Adding a romantic-touch to the event was one of the para-motor gliders who proposed marriage to his girlfriend! He took his gf for a tandem para-motor gliding and below was the banner asking for her hand. Sweet!
Here’s some of the photos I took during the finale, my camera was already nearing empty battery but I managed to get some pics, there was too many nice things to shoot:
Will post more of the morning during the last day of the hot air balloon festival later.
There were more balloons this year, more people (estimate crowd of 5,000-10,000) more food and retail concessionaires ( that you needed the best weight loss supplement to flush it all out if you tried everything), more airplanes on the exhibit), new fun hot air balloon like the Mushroom with a View (biggest), Pirate, Snowman, inverted balloon and Darth Vader!
Both thumbs up for this years festival!
Stay gorgeous everyone and Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy SAD (Single Awareness Day)!
