Sights: PAMPANGA's Hot Air Balloon Festival

I remember back then, I was a kid who wasnt fascinated with baloons. I didnt get the point of having to hold on a 'floating toy'. But last February at Pampanga's Hot Air Balloon Festival, I found myself glaring with glee at the gigantic hot air balloons.

Before the balloons took flight there were Para Gliders prancing around the skies.

As the balloons took its form, I found myself excitedly running from one model to another to take a closer look. When the hot air balloons took flight and filled the sky, it was a simple and pleasurable spectacle.
