Pampanga is not only known as the Culinary Capital of the Philippines but gain its popularity as it’s the venue of Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta(PIHABF) happening this February 9-12, 2017. It’s a weekend of everything that flies for different aerial shows will be witnessed and experience.

The gates will open at 5AM and the hot air balloons lift off at 6am when the wind is perfect for a flight.  This is the perfect time to take photos, so ready your cameras and phones to capture the breathtaking view of balloons during sunrise.

After that, aerial shows such as paragliding,  skydiving, radio controlled aircraft, dancing kites, and other aerial exhibitions will dominate the sky.
