CAPTIVATE MANILA, Megaworld Lifestyle Malls, Seats, and Outdoor Products Philippines are happy to present MANILA’S 1ST PICNIC POP-UP on September 5, 2015 at the newly opened Burgos Park, Forbes Town Center, Fort Bonifacio. A first in the country, MANILA’S 1ST PICNIC POP-UP is a whirlwind weekend event carefully crafted with families, friends, and foodies in mind. It is all about FLASHBACK FUN: going back to our roots and having fun like we used to – with other people in the backyard, enjoying the great outdoors, accompanied by good food, good music, and equally good company.
Originating from Paris then New York, we are now bringing this unique pop-up concept to Manila. A first in the Philippines, MANILA’S 1ST PICNIC POP-UP showcases an exciting line-up of activities and workshops: old-school games, arts and crafts sessions, workshops for kids and the kids at heart, live art, and many more! In cooperation with our friends from Selecta Philippines, everyone can enjoy cool desserts at the DIY pop-up ice cream parlor. The afternoon fun will then culminate with an outdoor flash mob dinner, highlighting some of the yummiest artisanal cuisines from Fort Bonifacio restaurants.
Plus, stay tuned for more goodies from our other partners: GOcery, FitFlop, and M&G.
