Up Close & Personal with the Hot Air Balloons

Happy โค’s Day to everyone! I feel blessed to be given another wonderful opportunity to bond and to celebrate family day Sunday…with a style! โœŒ ย ๐Ÿ˜€ We were able to attend the 16th Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2011. We went to the the last day of the much celebrated event and fanfare in Clarkfield Pampanga.

The photos will speak on how the amazing and awesome the event was! ๐Ÿ˜›

Welcome to the Philippine Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2011!
The Morning Activity started off with the singing of the Philippine National Anthem ย with a paragliding exhibition with the Philippine Flag.
