Ayala Land unveiled to the eager public UP Town Center’s newest wing, which boasts new exciting shopping boutiques and dining destinations on an even bigger floor space. A school-fair event dedicated to fashion, fun, and revelry was held to celebrate the occasion.
The UP Pep Squad kicked off the festivities with an adrenaline-pumping performance, followed by an equally astounding presentation by the Indayog ng Atenistang Kabataan. Their energetic grooves, killer choreographies and acrobatic stunts added hype to the crowd.
From the stage to the runway, the fun continued, never missing a beat thanks to DJ Yoshi Uy and student DJs Janey Jimenez, John Sedano and Everyday People of Bounce Electronic Music and DJ School.
An awe-inspiring fashion show took center stage afterwards, and brought to the limelight this season’s hottest outfits—perfect for play and for school. Celebrities Claudia Barretto, Julia Montes and Derrick Monasterio as well as a few beauties from the participating universities showed off their fashion-forward, first-day-of-school ensembles.
Putting forward their own brand of school spirit, UP Town Center also gave the community a sneak peek into the fun, off-campus lifestyle, hosting a student fair where shoppers, students and their barkadas could hangout out and take part in the fun activities.
Here, students and passersby showed off their competitive streak, playing ring toss, air hockey and foosball. Game booths also offered exciting entertainment with activities like the velcro wall, balloon splash painting, doodle wall, and bungee trampoline.
Food and various activity booths, care of UP Town Center’s merchants, were also onsite for those who wanted to munch, shop or snap a picture with their friends.
The party continued late into the evening, with the grand celebration culminating with a beautiful display of fireworks.
