The Penang Hot Air Balloon Fiesta returns for the 3rd consecutive year! Here’s another chance for you to float above Padang Polo (Polo Ground) in Penang on a huge hot air balloon. From 7.00am to 9.30pm, it will be held on 4th and 5th February 2017, which is the 8th and 9th day of Chinese New Year. What better way to celebrate this festivity with your family and friends where there’ll be loads of fun and excitement in store for all ages,with free entrance into the event grounds.
The highlight of the event is 15 colourful hot air balloons displayed during the morning and evening sessions. There will also be ‘Night Glow’ shows featuring 10 balloons lighted up with music and light accompaniment to fascinate spectators. Several international balloonists from Netherlands, Belgium, Brazil, Japan, Philippines and Thailand will participate and special shaped balloons will be featured.
Over this two-day event, ticketed tethered balloon rides will be available where one can go up as high as 60 feet. There will also be the ‘cold inflation’ activity where anyone can walk into a balloon envelope that’s filled with cold air as it lies on the ground. In addition, F&B stalls and family friendly activities will be available throughout the event such as inflatables, creative workshops, paddle boat rides on a huge pool, reverse bungees for adults and kids, giant trampoline and more!
