Enchanted Kingdom Highlights Filipino Talents at 21st Anniversary Celebration
The Philippines’s leading amusement park, Enchanted Kingdom, celebrated its twenty-first anniversary last October 15, 2016.
The world-class theme park has been around for as long as the Filipinos can remember, providing fun and entertainment for the whole family. Enchanted Kingdom has always been a must-visit place for any family wanting to spend a day someplace they can try a lot of exciting activities.
It was October 19,1995, when Enchanted Kingdom first opened its doors for the public to see. It’s 2016 and the theme park has now organized a big bang celebration to mark the start of their third decade in the industry.
Enchanted Kingdom Celebrates Anniversary with Filipino Talents
Celebrating its anniversary, Enchanted Kingdom introduced 21 new exciting rides, which they trust Filipinos will enjoy. And as a huge supporter of Filipino music, to further celebrate this milestone, the amusement park gathered some of the Philippines’s top talents for a special musical concert held at Spaceport. The show was hosted by actress Angel Aquino, Richard Reynoso, and Franz Imperial.
One of the performers was award-winning rock band Sponge Cola led by their vocalist, Yael Yuzon, together with bass player Gosh Dilay, guitarist Erwin Armovit, and drummer T-Mac Cruz. Sponge Cola made the event a truly enjoyable one as they played their top hits that have lyrics many Pinoys can relate to.
Another crowd-pleaser in the event was UPEEPZ, the all-Filipino crew who triumphed at the recently concluded 2016 World Hip-hop Dance Championship held at The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa. Fast-rising R & B band Climax also performed at the event.
The event was highlighted by a magnificent fireworks display in the sky, truly a world-class light, and sound presentation from Platinum fireworks. The visitors enjoyed an extended fun at the park until midnight as a treat to the park’s loyal customers.
Speaking of the celebration, Enchanted Kingdom’s chief operating officer, Dr. Cynthia Mamon, said, “When we built EK 21 years ago, the concept was an escape from reality so [there’s] nothing Filipino [about it] as you’ve seen; but after 21 years, we felt that we have to give back. It is also the time by which we should bring out national pride. We should educate future generations of how beautiful our country is.Enchanted Kingdom Highlights Filipino Talents at 21st Anniversary Celebration by Holly
