ANGELES CITY | 2012 Hot Air Balloon Festival Schedule | Lakad Pilipinas

One of the most awaited festival in the country is upon us once again, prepare for colorful balloons to dot the sky of Clarkfield, Pampanga for four consecutive days! 

The first and last time I’ve attended the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta was last 2010 and I’m stoked that I’d be able to finally attend again this year!

For those interested in seeing the balloons fly, you can get your tickets at Ticketnet and at the gate itself for Php200.00

Take the NLEX then take the SCTEX on-ramp after passing the Dau Exit. From the SCTEX, take the southbound lane to Clark South Exit. Via Yokohama Complex, turn right at Roxas Highway and you’ll see the balloons to your right.

Or you may also take the Dau way.  From NLEX, exit at Dau, turn left to Angeles City, then turn right to Clark.  Enter the main gate towards Roxas Highway and the balloons would be on your right.
