Spectacular hot air balloons colored the skies in the morning while vibrant music kept the crowd alive as they partied through the night.

Last April 7, InqPOP! went to Lubao, Pampanga for the second day of the Lubao International Balloon and Music Festival (LIBMF) 2017 — the biggest hot air balloon festival in South East Asia. The festival featured hot air balloon flights from several local and international participants, as well as exciting aerial and ground activities. At night, Gloc 9 and Parokya Ni Edgar took the stage and delivered amazing performances as the crowd sang along to their favorite hits.

Check out some of the highlights of the second day of #LIBMF2017:
