Other attractions and booths - 19th Philippine Hot Air Balloon Festival–part 5

P1015871

After sunrise and the flight of the balloons, the event showcased everything that flies, from RC planes, propeller powered paragliders, sky jumpers, aircraft acrobats, rescue chopper demo, and many more. There’s a schedule in every activity and expect a series of flyers after the morning til the evening.


Some people participated in flying anything that can fly, for example kites and gliding paper planes. Many booths sells different kinds of kites and pinwheels, with different sizes, shapes and colors. I bought a small cobra kite for PHP 25 and a mini hot air balloon for PHP 150 as a souvenir and pasalubong for my son.
