Videos: Lubao International Balloon Festival 2016

Wazzup Pilipinas!

We took a lot of videos during the 3rd Lubao International Balloon Festival or #LubaoIBF2016 held at Pradera Verde located at Prado Siongco in Lubao, Pampanga and have posted some of the highlights during the same days between April 14 to 17, 2016 when we rode for the first time the hot air balloon and experienced the feeling of how it is soaring among the clouds and above the Lubao, Pampanga rice fields.

There were mixed emotions as we couldn't decide if we want to enjoy the view or take lots of phots and videos while up above the Pampanga sky. The heat of the flames the keeps the hot air balloon afloat was also somewhat distracting as we sweat so much that it was advised to have some water after a few hours up in the air.

Our balloonist from Spain was more than relaxed that he even opted to fly twice. We landed somewhere only to change tanks and flew again somewhere in Bataan. The second landing was a bit rough as we bumped into some tree branches, and our balloon making a "hop" during landing.

However, it was a very minor discomfort if we are to consider the overall experience. Since it was our first time to fly high and that the Philippine weather is really hot especially during summer, the morning flight was still not the most ideal as the balloons could have stayed longer and flew higher if the weather was colder in temperature.

But what would you expect from a tropical country like the Philippines. We are mostly known for our splendid beaches and not by hot air balloons. But Pampanga has surely made the Philippines widely known for having two hot air balloon events every year. Kudos to the organizers for putting us again on the map as a destination for hot air balloon festivals.

  1. Wow nice post! this is a good feature for a balloon festival. Filipinos will enjoy watching hot air balloons. For sure, Pampanga will be the next tourist spot here in North Luzon.
