Finally, the much awaited Frontrow International Hot Air Balloon Festival is happening this April at Clark Global City where the sky will be dotted again with giant animals, happy faces, and other improbable flying objects alongside the classic striped hot air balloons.

This year’s Frontrow International Hot Air Balloon Festival on April 12 to14, promises to be even bigger, bolder, busier, and better. The event boasts of a bigger and more accessible venue at Clark Global City—a thriving hub of industry and commerce that you can literally get to by air, land, and sea.

At the presscon held recently at Enderun Collge, Global Gateway Development Corp. Vice Chairman and President, Wilfredo Placino laid out the plans for this year’s festival.

Not to be mistaken with the Lubao Hot Air Balloon Festival which will happen a week before the Frontrow International Hot Air Balloon Festival, the Balloon Festival promises to be a feast for all the senses and will involve activities that will be love by all attendees.

So what are the 8 things we will expect at the Frontrow International Hot Air Balloon Festival, the Balloon Festival:

It will feature a total of 20 balloons – 15 regular shaped balloons and 5 never-before-seen special shape balloons;

Over a hundred of food and shopping choices;

Fun activities for kids and families such as inflatable attractions and slides and shows for kids with their favorite cartoon characters;

The country’s hottest music acts, along with the best of Pampanga’s bands will take the stage every night over the weekend with the country’s hottest acts—Slapshock on Friday, Kamikazee on Saturday and Ely Buendia, Hale, and Unique Salonga on Sunday;

Car and motorsport enthusiasts will gather together for several major events that include the National Drift Championship, Slalom Racing, Philippine Auto Cross Championship Series, Philippine Rally Cross Series and Motorcycle Stunt Show;

Groups dancing and grooving to the beat this summer where 20 dance groups from different cities will compete on April 13,2019;

Twelve participating countries this year’s balloon festival from USA, Belgium, Malaysia, Netherlands, France, Thailand, Australia, Brazil, Vietnam, Korea, India and the Philippines;

Longer hours for tourists/attendees to experience riding in a tethered balloon and no more expensive rates unlike in other festival since for only 500 pesos you get to be up in the sky. Regular shaped balloons can make tethered flights from 6:30 to 9:30 in the morning and if wind condition permits, from 5:00 to 6:30 in the afternoon.

Held in cooperation with SM City Clark and sponsored by Phoenix Pulse Technology, Dickies and Clark Medical City, the Frontrow International Hot Air Balloon Festival promises to be fun for all and a weekend that you wouldn’t want to miss.
