12th Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

Are you ready for a weekend of everything that flies? then head on to Clark Pampanga and experience "biggest aviation sports event in the country today". Hot air balloon and airplane pilots from all over the world fly into the Philippines to join their local counterparts in this breathtaking event. In addition to daily flights of the hot air balloons, other activities include: skydiving, daily flag jumps (a skydiver jumps with the Philippine flag while the National Anthem is played to the start of the day's activities); micro light demonstrations; small planes fly-bys and fly-ins; remote controlled airplanes exhibitions; aerobatics; light airplane balloon bursting competition; ultra-light formation flying and bomb dropping exhibitions; helicopter fly-ins and exhibitions; an air rally from Clark to Vigan; rocketry demonstrations; kite flying exhibitions; and races between ultra lights and motorcycles.

Twenty one balloons are due to show-up this year with 19 hot air balloons flown by foreign pilots from the following countries: United States, United Kingdom, Germany, England, Sweden, Hungary, The Netherlands, Finland, Switzerland, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, and South Korea. The other two balloons will be flown by Filipino pilots.

Joining this years lineup are some balloons of unique designs. These new and colorful balloons include two innovative balloons – an octopus from Japan and a tiger from Germany.

This years Hot Air Balloon Festival is to include a new and exciting addition called the “Clarksiyahan” – a “packet of activities” to be held from Feb. 8-10 at the CDC Parade Grounds. Clarksiyahan, is to feature a drag race, bikini open, spelling quiz/bee, PEP squad competition, inter-school street dancing, locators’ product selling, and the Johnny Walker rave party and fashion show.

Getting There:

Getting to the Clark Freeport Zone, otherwise known as the Clark Special Economic Zone by car is easy. Simply needs to take the North Luzon Expressway from Manila and exit at Dau, Mabalacat. After your exit, a left turn towards Angeles City, and a little Angeles City/Dau traffic, will bring you to within an easy right turn of the Clark Zone itself. The trip should take about an hour and a half from Manila without heavy traffic.






Entrance fee for each day of the the balloon festival event is P100
