MANILA—After a 22-year run, organizers cancelled the annual Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, originally scheduled in February 2019 at Clark, Pampanga.

In a statement Monday, they said the event failed to get any commitment from their government partners on time.

But shows outside Clark this year is possible, they added, saying announcements will be posted online.

Organizers thanked the event's supporters for joining Asia's longest-running sports aviation event for more than 2 decades.
