CLARK, Pampanga — The 17th Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Clark Field, Pampanga came to an end Sunday, February 12. The annual 4-day event is a crowd drawer bringing in over a hundred thousand tourists from all over the country.
An estimated 28 balloonists from all over the world participated this year. But hot air balloon rides aren’t the only thing happening at the event.
The fiesta has much to do with pretty much anything that flies — sky diving and paragliding exhibitions, acrobatic air shows, and rocketry demonstrations.
The public is also invited to go fly a kite (not in the rude way), a model airplane, or visit various booths where one can go up close and personal with military aircrafts.
