The Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta is set to give visitors a fresh round of visual treats with a three-day spectacle of hot air balloons, helicopters, and air sport events at the San Lazaro Leisure Park in Carmona, Cavite on March 6-8, 2020.
The event "The Flying Carnival 2020: A Weekend of Almost Everything that Flies" aims to spark the interest of visitors in aviation and to instill discipline in young pilots while providing a spectacle suitable for families.
The event will be set in a more comfortable viewing space where spectators will be treated to the sight of early morning balloon flights followed by non-stop flying exhibitions such as paragliding, skydiving, helicopter demonstrations, RC control line exhibitions, and kite flying.
Visitors can also wander through a carnival setting with food booths and entertainment for the whole family. Aviation souvenirs and unique finds can be bought at the Fly Market, and the weekend evenings will be capped off by a magical hot air balloon night glow and fireworks display.
Those considering a career in aviation can attend the Aviation Career Seminars to be given by renowned aviators and industry practitioners.
Those who wish to experience the carnival in comfort can opt to get the First Class Ticket, which allows an all-access pass to the event, including meals, private viewing areas, and access to the aviation seminars and air-conditioned bazaar.
