Celebrating A Decade of Ballooning
The Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon
Fiesta makes its return home to Precinct 2 in time to celebrate its 10th
anniversary! Happening from the 28th – 31st March 2019, AKA Balloon Sdn
Bhd, the nation’s pioneer of all things ballooning will again reprise
their role as the organiser of this beloved free-for-all event.
Locals and tourists will be able to bring their family and friends to
this colourful event filled with activities suitable for children and
adults alike. Undoubtedly famous for its mass balloon display and
ascension, other balloon activities are in-store such as an exclusive
opportunity to go on a tethered balloon ride via the MyBalloonClub
package or to have breakfast with the best view for balloon watching at
the Picnic Zone.
There will be a balloon igloo showcase – which are made out of recycled
hot air balloons, a corporate area for partners to exhibit their
products, an F&B park to quench visitors thirst and satiate everyone’s
appetite as well as other fun activities. The highlight of the Fiesta
and crowd favourite Night Glow will also make a comeback this year, with
a big surprise!
An expected 20 hot air balloons of various shapes and colours will be
making it to the event this year from all over the world including
Belgium, India, United Kingdom, Spain, Malaysia, Taiwan and Thailand.
Hare and Hound competition also known as the Rudy’s Trophy, named
after the founder of Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta
will be hosted by the organiser as an added highlight especially for the
pilots, enabling them to showcase their flying skills as they breeze
through the skies of Putrajaya and compete with each other.
