3rd Putrajaya International Air Balloon Fiesta

The annual Putrajaya International Air Balloon was held last week at Putrajaya Precinct 2. This year event was much bigger with 29 balloons flying.

I meant to be here everyday to catch all the balloons it got to offer. Unfortunately, a series of events (include a hangover on Saturday morning) kept me occupied until the last day of the fiesta.

To Inflate the balloons, the processes involve a few people skillfully operate the burner and blower to filled out the balloons with hot air.

It was a beautiful sight when the balloons were erected and launched off the ground

This was a moment to be remembered when the sky was filled with the colourful air balloons.

I was a bit disappointed again this year as for the 2nd consecutive year I missed out on seeing the Darth Vader air balloon. Better luck next year.

There was also this Doraemon balloon which I had high hope to see this year but did not materialized.

The site was virtually filled to the brim and many side events were made available to keep the visitors busy when the main event had not start.
