the sky was gloomy but 25 colorful balloons were there to set the fiesta mood of the event. around hundred thousand people were expected to witness it this year.it was my third time to attend the annual hot air balloon fiesta here in Clark Airfield in Pampanga. the last time i witnessed it was way back 2005 and 2006 but the crowd was not yet as big as it is this time.different countries has again participated to make the balloon flight as exciting bringing balloons of different forms and shapes.the hot air balloon according to wikipedia is the oldest successful human-carrying flight technology. its first manned flight was in France in 1783.though they offer people the chance of riding the balloon's gondola during the event it was still expensive but for sure the experience is priceless.i would like to acknowledge the people behind this year's event as i noticed that it was well planned and organized. the people enjoyed every moment.today, i believe that this annual balloon fest is already considered as one of the most popular event in the Philippines.[what you shouldn't miss there]>>> the experience when the balloon starts to inflate and sets itself to fly as high in the sky.
[why i should go back] >>> to witness the glow at night balloons. though i already saw it in 2005, wtinessing it again will definitely be something worth seeing again.
