Clark is approximately 80km north of Manila and may be reached by land or air. The 21st Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta will be held in the Omni Aviation Complex.
The venue is an open airfield, so please be prepared to be out in the sun! The venue can also get dusty during warm weather and muddy when it rains, so remember to be prepared for these conditions. Wear light clothing, sturdy but comfortable shoes, hats and shades, and sunblock! Bring face masks or handkerchiefs, just in case of flying dust, too.

How to go to the Fiesta
By Public Transport
Public buses are available daily. Take a Victory Liner bus bound for DAU, PAMPANGA. Alight at the terminal and walk a bit towards the highway where taxis, jeepneys, and tricycles are available – all of which can take you to Clark gate. From there, take another jeep and ask the driver to drop you off at the Balloon Fiesta at Omni Aviation. Walk to entrance gates.
Take the North Luzon Expressway from Manila and exit at DAU, MABALACAT CITY, PAMPANGA. 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 takes about an hour and a half from Manila without heavy traffic. Because of the volume of people on their way to enjoy the weekend, please be prepared for heavier traffic during Fiesta days, especially Saturday and Sunday!
Clark may also be reached via the new Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX). From the North Luzon Expressway, continue the drive leading to the SCTEX exit. You may use either the CLARK NORTH INTERCHANGE (Panday Pira access road near Nayong Pilipino) or CLARK SOUTH INTERCHANGE (near Yokohama and Clark Main Gate) to enter Clark.
Make sure you get there early so you can get a parking slot near the gates. Parking fees are on a per entry basis.
