Just yesterday during our way home and while stuck in traffic where listening to the radio they come with a topic discussing the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. They were asking why there is no Philippine Hot Air Balloon Festival this year. That often almost year after year would celebrate that almost all the people will come and have fun.
The answer with that that Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta Organizing Committee is just finalizing in where the next festival will be held. In addition, to clarify its disassociation from another organization staging a balloon event in Lubao, Pampanga to decide not to held the fiesta this year.
The 19th Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta will be held next year February 12 – 15, 2015 at Clark Field Pampanga.
