Schedule of Activities
The 21st Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta was on February 9-12, 2017 at Clark, Pampanga. It was four days jam-packed with spectacular flying exhibitions and on-the-ground fun to experience friends and family!
Please note that all flying activities are dependent on favorable weather conditions for the safety of guests and crew.
Open gates and National Anthem
Rise and shine early in the day so you can get your preferred spot to watch the festivities! We’re expecting lots of people to experience the fun Fiesta, so please be prepared to stand in line while waiting to go inside.
When gates open at 4AM, staff will verify your tickets and security personnel will check packages being brought in. Once inside, you can already visit the Fly Fiesta, have snacks at the food stalls, have sunrise selfies, and watch the hot air balloons being inflated.
Guests who bought Hot Air Balloon Ride tickets will enter the launch area. They can chat with the pilots as they prepare for their flights! VIP ticket holders will also be able to enter the balloon launch patio and the air-conditioned lounge.
Shortly after gates open, the Philippine Flag will be flown as the sun rises.
Morning Hot Air Balloon Flights
Get your cameras ready! If wind conditions are favorable, the hot air balloons lift off around 5:30-6AM.
Guests who bought Hot Air Balloon Ride tickets will be soaring high in their balloons!
Guests who purchased pre-nup photo shoot passes will be in the designated area at this time.
A full day of activities
It’s the Weekend of Everything that Flies! Paragliders, skydivers, radio controlled aircraft, dancing kites, and other aerial exhibitions will be taking turns in the sky. Don’t worry about aviation terms. Our hosts will be explaining them to you.
Meanwhile, on the ground, there’s lots to do! Try your hand at Oculus Archery or have fun with the animals at the Zoocobia booth. Fly kites. Go on a food trip at the food trucks and stalls. Visit exhibitors’ booths and you might win in their raffles and contests!
As we enjoy the Fiesta, please remember to keep the Fiesta grounds clean. Please do not litter. Let us throw trash in the proper places.
Note: Drones are not allowed during the Fiesta as it is an active airfield. Similarly, hoverboards are not allowed in the Fiesta grounds for the safety of our guests. Thank you.
