Having comparison from the last year’s event, the 9th MyBalloonFiesta was held in a not so good location. Desa Park seemed a small place for this kind of activity. Foodgasm provides few options. A poor crowd management inside the display area. The emcee guy kept asking the people to leave a certain spot but no one tried to guide them. Or maybe there was, we just didn’t see it because we stepped away for a while. It rained and the place turned muddy as expected. The event will run for 3 days and we participated today, the second day.
Though it wasn’t what I expected, it’s still a good event. I was surprised to know that Philippines was one of the participants. The gigantic green hot air balloon was ours (Bayan ng Lubao – Lalawigan ng Pampanga). I believe there were more participants last year. There was not much of balloons today and I didn’t witness one flying.
At least I enjoyed my friends’ company. We were able to have a good conversation while waiting for the Night Glow show to start, and then headed back home after dinner.
Let’s look forward for next year!
