Hot Air Balloon Fiesta
« on: February 14, 2011, 03:57:08 PM »
I was at Clark Air Base last Friday Feb 11 to see the balloons. Was very lucky with the weather, glorious sunshine and light breezes. Here\'s a short video of the balloons at dawn.

Incredible video...   ;D

I really liked the Darth Vader, and \"upside down\" balloons...   Wish I could have been there.

Wonderful footage. We will add this to our things to do next year. By the way what video camera did you use?

Thanks. Yes it is definitely worth a visit. And I\'d never been to Angeles City before, so that was an eyeopener for me and quite good fun as well.

The camera is a Canon XH-A1, recording HDV format to miniDV tape. It\'s a bit large for carting around, but i\'m used to it after years of practice.

It\'s nice to see that ballooning has a following in the Philippines.  I live in New Mexico where there is one of the largest hot air balloon fiestas in the world.  I saw the Darth Vader balloon a few years ago.  So yes, something else to add to my list-of-things-to-do when I relocate to the Philippines.
