spectators ready - 14th hot air balloon clark

crowds of people were coming from almost everywhere going to one direction, the Clark Aviation zone.we ended our coffee time at Starbucks Roxas boulevard around 1:20am with Lingkod Alabang. Orlan accompanied me to Five Star Terminal in Cubao as i waited for my high school classmate Grail, who will be joined me on this trip. the bus left the terminal 3:50am and we arrived at the Dau terminal by 4:45am. it was still dark yet you can already see people flocking to the entrance of the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta main gate.
by that time, people were already in position to capture the early balloon flights. it was now the last day for this event and so a large number of spectators were expected.you'll see a number of photo enthusiasts and spectators in the area. big long lense were positioned high up.after the Philippine flag was brought down by the sky divers, the event was officially open for that day.the balloons were now positioned to lift. around 18 to 25 balloons were expected to fly. to be continued on my next post.

ang galing. nakasakay ka ng hot air balloon? nakakita ako sa internet na nagoofer na sumakay sa mga balloons for a fee.

arlene said...

i was also there! when the balloons started to rise one by one, i was in panic mode because i wanted to get a decent shot but at the same time i also was awed by the whole spectacle!

katcarneo said...

Wow,,, you were there! I had planned to go there but the boyfriend's schedule screwed up everything hehe. I saw a report about that on TV last Saturday and I was very much inggit.

Vic said...

OMG! I was here! hehe! ang saya kaso hindi napalipad ni isang hot air baloon. :( mahangin daw masyado. I also got photos (of course, not as good as yours! hehe!) :)

Sidney said...

I am glad I went there years ago when the crowd wasn't that big. At that time photographers were able to approach the hot air balloons.

REDLAN said...

Ganda. Early in the morning pero marami ang nag aabang. Gaya ng pag aabang ko sa next post. Gusto ko na masilayan ang paglipad ng mga balloons.

dodong flores said...
