18th Hot Air Balloon Festival


February 23, 2013




     My first time to watch this popular yearly event in Clark!  And it was on my birthday with my boyfriend and close friends. 

     Thanks to couchsurfing.org!  I received 3 tickets from couch surfer who cancelled her trip to Clark.  So the free tickets were birthday gift from her and I’m really grateful for that.  I’m very lucky when it comes to getting free tickets.  :) 

     We arrived at the event as early as 5:30 AM and waited patiently for the hot air balloon flight.  Viola!  The take off of balloons were so beautiful and colorful.  It comes in different shapes, colors and designs. 

     Some of the exciting activities were paragliding, sky diving, Breitling Jet Team aerobatic exhibition and aircraft precision show.  You can also do kite flying.  Afternoon activities were quite boring, so we went back to the hotel to rest and came back later in the evening to watch the ballooning and had our supper there.

     It was a fun day to remember!
