I know that The Hot Air Balloon Fiesta happened quite some time ago. Hehe! Look at me, just like a happy kiddo standing at the take off site.
Arrived at the venue around 4pm, the crowd was crazy! Everyone was looking very enthusiastic and you can see cameras everywhere, clicking away. My friends and I were there on the last day of the event and it was kind off disappointing as the weather was gloomy. We didn't get to see many hot air balloons in the sky.

|Witnessing the first balloon slowly taking form.|
|The first balloon, the Vietmanese Cat was about to take off. We can hear the crowd cheering so loud , *cough cough* me too actually. It was a cheerful event as you got to see many families with children! The smiles on their faces was priceless!|
|I can feel the heat of the flame even though I was watching from afar!|
The were about 27 balloonists from 14 countries ; United States, Japan, Belgium, Switzerland, New Zealand, Netherlands, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Dubai, India, Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia.
|As the hot air balloon was lifted up, the crowd was cheering in frenzy!|
It was a good experience and I hope that I get to ride on the hot air balloon in the next Hot Air Balloon Fiesta!
