hi! my gf and i plan to go there on the first day, Thursday. Is it fun to be there on a weekday considering there will be more activities in the weekend? How far is Zoobic from the venue? Thanks :) I enjoy reading your blog.

Nice pic! Let's go bro!

Thanks for posting this info. I'm thinking of going on Sunday. BTW, I'm not sure if you've seen this already, but the Digital Photography School recently posted a guide on Air Show Photography. =)

hi, anton! i already posted my entry on my blog regarding this day trip. i so want to go! :P

so posting the entry means i can join the convoy na? :)

pls reply soon. keep up the good blogging!

We will also watch the balloon festival but unfortunately we can't join you since we will be with other family members.

We want to try some of the food you recommended in your best of Pampanga cuisine entry. Pls. inform me of the address of Aling Mely's Sisig, Jun-jun's bbq and Aurely's. Are they far from Clark and far from each other?

Thanks in advance and see you there =D

I want to go! I want to go! ...I want to bring my daughter with me to ride the hot air balloon. Would you know how much is the cost for the hot air balloon ride? Would they allow a 4yr. old to ride?
Thanks for the info. :)

Hi Anton,

I have posted the link on my multiply site. Can you please give me the details of the trip? How many companions can I bring? What do we need to prepare and bring?


Hi Anton!
I posted the link in my multiply site as well! :D I'll be going with a few friends of mine.
See you then! :D

Hey Anton!

Would you know if there will be hot air balloons which is open for the public to 'sample ride'?


paki suportahan naman po ang lone entry ng pinas sa Philippine Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

salamat po

For those who want to try Aling Lucing's sisig, they have an outlet at the Food Court of SM Clark, near the Sizzling Plate. Also a must try at SM Clark is the Roti at Michele's Bake Shop, by the Entertainment Place, near Sizzling Plate and SM Appliance. The Roti is always sold out once it's out of the oven. Good luck with the Roti.

hi! I am really, really excited on this event, we are palnning to go thre on the last day.. but we dont know if there are fees that we need to pay or we can just go there anytime since we have our own vehicle. Pls enlighten me, my son would really love to see those balloons thanks..

I heard on GMA7 news last night that there's an entrance fee of P100 and a ride on the hot air balloon would cost USD150 (not sure if that's per person or per balloon).

Can anybody tell me how much is the entrance fee? Is it 100 or 150 pesos? Also what is "CTRM"? Thanks!
