Balloon Bash at Putrajaya!

The gotta to be most happening week coz beside St. Patrick day at One Utama, it also the week of Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2010. Spark by the success of The success of the 2009 fiesta, which managed to pull more than 150,000 visitors throughout the four days. It back and with vengeance, cuz Darth Vader (from Star Wars fame , or at least his head, will be hovering in the skies of Putrajaya as part of the Putrajaya International Balloon Fiesta.

Joining Vader in the air will be 17 other balloons from countries like Japan, Belgium, Switzerland, New Zealand, The Netherlands, USA and France while five balloons will be tethered to the ground.

There will be five hot air balloons specifically designated to offer tethered rides to the public, available during two sessions a day, from 8am to 11am and 6pm to 9pm.Other activities for the public are helicopter rides, water ball and sphere rides, colouring competition, photography competition, auto show and a petting zoo, to name a few.

Location: Putrajaya
Where:Precinct 2, adjacent to the Monument Alaf Baru
When:Thursday, March 18 at 7:00 am until
Sunday, March 21 at 9:00 pm

I highly recommend taking Public transport to Putrajaya using U43 RapidKl bus (Putrajaya Sentral to One Utama) from Kelana Jaya Lrt Station. Upon arrival at Putrajaya Sentral , switch to Nadi Putra bus or take ERL from KL Sentral.
