I am ticking an item from my 2018 list sooner than I thought! I'm going to the Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta at the Omni Aviation Complex in Clark Pampanga!!!
Now on their 22nd year and the longest running sports aviation event in Asia, the Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta is set on February 8-11, 2017 and will showcase 26 colorful hot air balloons from all over the world! I am also excited to see the special-shaped balloons such as Happy Heart, Matryoshka Russian Doll, Queen’s Guard, and the Giant Strawberry! Since it's the "Weekend of Everything that Flies", there will also be non-stop flying activities including paragliding, skydiving, aerobatic exhibitions, formation flights, balloon bursting competitions, and kite flying. If I can, I will avail everything! Mwahaha!
There will also be a performance of the world's only aerobatic formation wingwalking team, na feel ko nakaka loka! Hahaha, I am excited to watch them do headstands and other moves while strapped to the aircraft's wings!
If you're satisfied to just watch and take OOTDs from the ground, they also have cool activities such as archery, horseback riding, CAMEL riding, animal feeding, and musical performances and fireworks display in the evening.
The best thing about supporting this event is that the Balloon Fiesta actually boosts the tourism of our very own Clark, Pampanga and the Philippines. Entrance tickets are at Php 500, a percentage of which goes to PIHABF Foundation Scholarship Fund, granting scholarships to underprivileged by deserving students who want to pursue a career in aviation.
I am also giving away THREE PAIRS of passes! Just follow me on Instagram @anagon as I will post the contest there. 😊
See you soon!
