The wait for the next edition of MyBalloonFiesta is over! When it was announced early last year that the 2018 edition of the event was postponed until March this year, many were saddened by the news. Now, in time for its 10th birthday, the high-flying spectacle returns to colour the skies over Putrajaya and with a flurry of events on the ground.
Formerly known as the Putrajaya Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, the stars of the free-for-all event have always been the fleet of unconventionally styled balloons that fly in from all over the world. Alongside the traditional teardrop shapes, past events have seen Humpty Dumpty, Vincent Van Gogh, Darth Vader and giant peacock balloons make appearances.
Expect no less this year with more than 20 balloons set to dot the skies above the administrative capital. Catch the mass ascension of these balloons on all four mornings in the Blue Zone!
Tethered rides are available if you purchase the MyBalloonClub package which comes with jazz performances, a gourmet breakfast and space to watch an inflation, as well as complimentary tickets to the awesome Night Glow show which caps off each day.
You can also up the ante and opt for the Myballoon Adventure which gets you an hour ride (at a much more premium rate).
Back on ground level visitors can gaze at a unique balloon igloo showcase, made out of recycled hot air balloons, satiate their hunger at the F&B park and take part in any number of action-packed activities including wall climbing, archery, paintballing, zorbing and plenty more.
As an added bonus there will be an airborne Hare and Hound competition that will give pilots a chance to showcase their flying skills as they try to outdo each other in the Putrajaya sky. This plus a special surprise during the Night Glow show ensure that the 10th anniversary of MyBalloonFiesta will be one for the books!
