Visit Pampanga: The Lubao IBMF 2018.


So much feels in this photo. I can't contain my excitement being here for the Lubao International Balloon and Music Festival 2018. Yes, another hot air balloon festival that I was able to be part of this year. Hot Air Balloons really is such an amazing sight.


But the struggle is real for the not-so-morning-person in me. Team #EatGetaway decided to travel up north the night of March23 after an event that we all are in, up we go for a road trip with Az, Enzo, and Ted of Eatgetaway. 


Housed at Royce Hotel in Clark I should be up and be going by 4am to Pradera Verde in Prado Siongco Lubao, Pampanga. Oops, I'm not complaining, you know there's no stopping me when it comes to having a gala!



This is my first time being here for The Lubao International Balloon and Music Festival. The first day of the 3day festival seems pretty fine except for the chilly breeze of the super early morning. We arrived just in time as we can still see some of the balloons being set-up.







As the sun starts to shine on us, one by one the balloons rose up. 














Still having the cold morning breeze, yet the strong wind kicks in.


With this, the balloon flights were canceled. I kinda felt sad for my first day here in LubaoIBMF. But safety should always come first. Wind is a major factor in flying a hot air balloon. For the wind affects every phase of its flight. Stable winds like 4-6miles per hour are the ideal measures for a good balloon flight. 




Watch how my day went at the #LubaoIBMF2018. 
See how strong the winds were and take a peak of how the balloons are being set up.




The fun didn't stop there, actually, the fun part is just getting started. 



At night, the LUBAO IBMF offers another attraction that festival goers will surely love.


The Night Glow
also known as Balloon Glow



As the sun sets, the balloons are just being set up once more for another wonderful attraction.





The Night Glow, also known as the balloon glow is my favorite part of any Hot Air Balloon Festivals.



The balloons are stationed and being lighted up intermittently by the propane burners.



And the effect is so awesome, seeing it like having a magical glow.


Never fails to amaze me.





Still, the night is young and the Lubao IBMF got so much more activities lined up for us.
Just after the Night Glow, the Music Festival took place.
