Since the hot air balloon flights will start at 5:30 in the morning (we thought so!) and we couldn't leave early from our place , I thought of booking a hotel room around Clark but to no avail. They were all fully booked! We just decided to find a hotel room outside Clark Freeport Zone once we get there. We were able to find a hotel room but the only available room was the Suite room that only had 1 double bed and a sofa bed. We had to avail an extra mattress (P600) since there were 7 of us.The hotel was 15 minutes away from the venue. I think I'll book a room at Euro Tour Hotel again just in case we decided to attend next year's hot air balloon festival but we'll avail a cheaper room.
Aside from hot air balloon flights, there were also lots of exhibits and fun activities such as Paragliding Exhibition, Aerobatic Air Show, Skydiving Exhibition, Aerobatic Flight Display and a lot more. The kids wanted to fly a kite but we had to go back to our hotel room to freshen up, prepare for our next destination and check out.
We decided to attend on the second day ( friday) since it will be jam packed on weekends.
We got there at 500:Am
We were lucky enough to be able to reserve a spot.
At 6:00AM, balloons were starting to inflate
Getting ready to take off!
I love this cake shaped balloon!
The daisy and panda shaped balloons are a darling!
car shaped balloon
bird shaped balloon
at 7:20 AM every balloon has flown up away except for the daisy, panda and the one behind us. I'm not sure what went wrong. The daisy shaped balloon was able to take off a few meters above the ground but surprisingly descended slowly towards the ground.

Overall it was a delightful experience! The kids were overjoyed! Who couldn't be happier if you get to spend wonderful happy moments with loved ones. It sure was a joyous day for all of us!
