I have always wanted to see the annual dreamy flight of hot air balloons in Clark, Pampanga. For some reason, I could not always make it.This year, the heavens gave me enough reasons not to miss it! Sky at the south will soon be filled with fun and colors as the most awaited Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta will finally happen in Cavite!
Set on a weekend in March, everyone is yet to witness endless paragliding, skydiving, helicopter demonstrations, RC control line exhibitions, kite flying and of course, early morning balloon flights!
