Penang Hot Air Balloon Fiesta (HAB 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. Held on the 8th and 9th day of Chinese New Year, be sure to mark your calendars this 4th and 5th February from 7am to 9.30pm. 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. Not to be missed are the 15 colourful hot air balloons displayed during the morning and evening sessions on both days at Padang Polo plus 10 free flying ones on 3rd February 2017 at Sungai Jawi.
What’s in store for the upcoming HAB Fiesta?
Ticketed tethered balloon rides will be available on first-come first-served basis, where one can go up as high as 60 meters. A ‘Night Glow’ show on each night will feature 10 balloons lighted up with music and light accompaniment to fascinate spectators. 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. Additionally, family friendly activities and entertainment as well as F&B stalls will be set up and available throughout the event.
