LUBAO – Following the advise of the Department of Health (DOH) to cancel big events amidst the COVID-19, organizers of the Lubao International Balloon and Music Festival (IBMF) have decided to cancel this year’s festival on April 3, 4, and 5.

The Department of Health also advises the public to avoid crowded areas as a precautionary measure to avoid contact of the disease.

Around 30,000 to 35,000 tourists around the country, as well as balloon flyers from around Asia and the world flock the festival annually which has led to the decision of the organization to cancel the event.

It is for this reason, and in light of the recent health concerns surrounding the COVID-19, that we have reached the decision to cancel the event,” said the IBMF.

Moreover, the organizers apologized to the public for the cancellation, but promised a bigger and grander event in 2021.
