Yeah, we we're among the throngs of people who went to Airport City, Clark, Pampanga to witness more than 20 hot air balloons flying. In reality though, we saw only around 3 or 4 in actual flight from a far even. We decided to watch Saturday but another thing came up and the husband couldn't come with us so we went on Sunday. We woke up around 4 am and left the house at 4:30 in order to catch heating up the balloons and the much-touted flag ceremony but we were stucked at NLrx due to heavy traffic. Thanks to husband's expert maneuvering, we were able to get out of the mess enough to still get some. Anyway, we passed about 3 cases of vehicle collission and one was so bad because it involved 9 vehicles on the overtaking lane. Whew!
Regardless, we still enjoyed going over there. We especially had fun kite-flying. The man seems to me was expert in everything even in kite flying. Many actually bought kites but failed to make it fly but the hubby flown 3! Much can be said about not giving up and the husband's will and perseverance is definitely up there.
So it's dubbed a weekend of everything that flies so there were infact many things to see aside from hot air balloons, so i think it's going to get bigger and bigger every year. The only thing that's a drawback was the Portalets. I'm grossed out even by the memory of it. Hopefully, the event organizer will be able to find a solution for it in the future.
