Good news everyone! The 2014 Philippine Hot Air Balloon is pushing through! The Department of Tourism will now take over the management of this event to be held on Apr. 10 - 13, 2014. Remember the post I wrote about last November, that the Clark Development Corporation announced there is no hot air balloon festival next year because "it is to soon"? Well, please disregard it! 

Due to the overwhelming plea of the public, Department of Tourism Region III Director, Ronnie Tiotuico said that "we don't want to break the tradition / legacy" so this has to happen. The Department of Tourism is actually the pioneer organizer of the ballooning event 18 years ago before it was transferred to another group.  

The theme for the Philippines' biggest aviation event next year is “It’s more than just hot air. It’s a celebration of life in times of adversity”.  Proceeds will be used to aid survivors of Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) and various charity missions.  

The official list of activities for the Philippine Friendship Balloon Festival 2014 is not yet announced, we will update this post as soon as the details are available. 

The Philippine Friendship Balloon Festival 2014 is expected to attract thousands of tourists and to generate money for tourism workers. Cannot wait to see this myself! I will soon be organizing tours so that more people can come over here.
