"We will also be increasing the number of the festival ballons and the number of awards," he said. Pyin Oo Lwin Festival is similar to the long-standing Taunggyi Hot Air Balloon Festival, where participants build their own hot air balloons and take off into the skies during the festival.
Taunggyi Festival is six nights and ends on the full Monday of the lunation Tazaungdine, which this year is November 21. Under Win Htain, responsible for stand maintenance and design, said that Iron Cross's renowned hip-hop performers and singers will be performing at the Pyin Oo Lwin Festival on November 18 and 19, which starts every night at 3pm.
Kie Htay Ko said he expects the festival to draw more people. "We organized the festival for the first in 2005. It' s become more crowded every year and I think we'll see more people this year than ever before," he said.
