KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 7 (Bernama) -- The Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta makes its return to Precinct 2, in time to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

The event, to be held from March 28 to March 31, is organised by AKA Balloon Sdn Bhd, which has been operating hot air balloon since 1995, and supported by Perbadanan Putrajaya (PPj).

AKA Balloon said in a statement, locals and tourists will be able to bring their family and friends to the colourful event filled with activities suitable for children and adults alike.
Besides 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, 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 Malaysia, Belgium, India, United Kingdom, Spain, 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.
