24 – 25 February 2018
An annual event in the island of Penang welcomes a huge crowd in their family-friendly activities along with numerous Penang food vendors on site for a wholesome fiesta. If you missed a chance to ride in the towering balloons last year, queue earlier as the ticket booth opens at 7.15am for the morning session ride or 5.45pm for evening session ride.
Afraid of heights? Fret not as the site is filled with many other fun activities such a a bull ride, trampolines and reverse bungees for both adults and kids. Besides that, there will also be various workshops held such as a ‘DIY Paper Craft Hot Air Balloon’, a drawing session or origami for artsy people.
An evening trip to the festival calls for a wondrous night of amazement with plenty of colourful canvasses clouding the sky in many shapes and sizes. Get your camera ready for fireworks display on the 24th of February after the official launch at 9pm.
