Just the mere mention of the Hot Air Balloon Festival at Clark global City brings to mind the eye-popping visual of a larger-than-life gathering of hot air balloons in all shapes and sizes from all over the world.
This year’s Frontrow International Hot Air Balloon Festival on April 12th to 14th promises to be even bigger, bolder, busier and better. The event boasts of a bigger and more accessible venue at Clark Global City- a thriving hub of industry and commerce that you can literally get to by air, land, and sea.
What to expect?
There will be balloon rides, of course, but the festival also has activities on the ground while people wait for their turn on a balloon, and for those who prefer to stay earthbound. Over a hundred food and shopping choices, fun activities for kids and families such as inflatable attractions, slides and their favorite cartoon characters. The country’s hottest music acts, along with the best of Pampanga’s bands will take the stage every night over the weekend with the country’s hottest acts – Slapshock on Friday, Kamikazee on Saturday and Ely Buendia, Hale and Unique Salonga on Sunday.
Car and motorsport enthusiasts will gather together for several major events that include the National Drift Championship, Slalom Racing, Philippine Auto Cross Championship Series, Philippine Rally Cross Series, and Suzuki Motorcycle Philippines Stunt Show.
We’ll also be witnessing groups dancing and grooving to the beat this summer as 20 dance groups from different cities compete on April 13, 2019.
Tethered Balloon Flight Schedule
One of the main difference of this event to the previous ones is the tethered balloon ride. A tethered balloon ride is when the balloons are anchored to the ground to keep it from flying away. Balloon rides are available for 6 years old and above.
