Pilipinas International Balloon Festival, Inc. held a Press Conference at Passion Restaurant in Resort’s World Manila to officially promote and invite the public to join them in the upcoming Lubao International Balloon Festival this March 26-29, 2015 in Lubao, Pampanga.
Already the biggest hot air balloon festival in the country, this year they’re reaching for new heights with their goal to not only fly all those balloons at the same time but with 15 special shaped ones which would make it the biggest number of special shaped balloon flying in Asia. They’re also gonna do a ‘Box Air’ type of flying which in other words would ensure that the balloons fly to a certain direction and doing so would help them come back to where they came from and not just fly off to an unknown location. This technique has only been done in choice parts of the world and by LUBAOIBF here in the Philippines.
This year they’re definitely going all out!
With more than 40 hot air balloons in their arsenal and the support and participation of internationally renowned balloonists all over the world. Not to mention 15 special shaped ones are in attendance that have not been seen here in the country since the good people over at LUBAOIBF wants you to see a new set each year, and to name a few of which I seriously can’t wait to see: Darth Vader, Yoda, Smurf, Humpty Dumpty, the Airship and of course let’s not forget the very large adorable looking Snobird!
and that’s just the tip of the iceberg…
This year, they made sure that everyone will have something to do and look forward to. So don’t fret, they really did think of everything. From seeing a show in the sky to a dance show on the streets. Just don’t get in the crossfire during the Water Balloon Fight and the Paint Ball Exhibition!
There’s also a food bazaar where Foodies like me can head on over and sample the goods that they have to offer and probably a lot of it. From what I saw on their floor plan, it’s arranged so that all of the concessionaires are together and you can easily find what you’re looking for.
Performances from artists like Kamikazee, Mitoy with the Draybers and The Voice PH season 2 final 4 will be there to entertain you at the end of the day. Just check out which day they will be performing on and you’re all set.
Although, I heard through the very fabulous grapevine that you just might get to see your favorite stars in the event. The list is long and full of hot damn glam. I’m not however at liberty to say just which ones since it’s supposedly a surprise.
with all that being said,
The one thing I really can’t wait to see and don’t want to miss is what they call the night glow.
Imagine the darkness of the night only illuminated by the glow of the colorful hot air balloons.
That alone makes it worth the trip in my book.
