Flores de Mayo a Success Amidst Downpour
Overcast skies and heavy rains did not deter Enchanted Kingdom (EK), the country’s premier theme park, from staging its much-awaited annual event Flores de Mayo.
Originally scheduled to go around the Park, like the real troupers they were, the cast members of EK staged the parade at Eldar’s Tent instead. Eldar’s Tent is a sprawling 600sqm. air-conditioned venue perfect for corporate events and personal milestones. The new location did not discourage people from flocking to the place and witnessing a colourful and grand event right before their very eyes. The show must go on!
Accompanied with the band music of Los BaÃ±os Drum & Lyre, the beautiful sagalas along with their debonair escorts paraded in their colourful and glamorous gowns to pay homage to the Virgin Mary who took the center stage.
The Flores de Mayo featured the works of the Fashion Designers Association of the Philippines headed by current President Johnny Abad and Junjun Cambe.
Aside from Mr. Cambe’s models, winners from the Slimmers World / Ms. Bikini Philippines 2009 Jocel Gimenez Kusain – 2nd Runner Up, Mariella Castillo – 1st Runner Up, Kimberly Brandon – Ms. International and Kim de Guzman – Ms. World together with Alexis Sy Go – Ms. Phils-Earth Runner Up 2009, Michelle Martha Braun – Ms. Phils-Earth Air 2009, Adie Adelantar – Ms. Phils.-Earth Eco Tourism 2009, Venus Raj – Ms. Phils-Earth Eco Tourism 2008 and Razel Eguia – Ms. Phils-Earth Air 2008 also sashayed around the tent in their full regalia.
Enchanted Kingdom’s VP for SMILE (Sales, Marketing, Imagineering, Leisure and Entertainment) Cynthia R. Mamon, Ph.D. was the hermana mayora of the event with Bea R. Mamon complementing the mother-daughter tandem.
Despite the gloomy skies, EK weathered the night with flourish, providing yet another magical moment for the park goers.
The evening was later capped off by “Enchanté Summer Musical”, a unique under the sea experience featuring EK’s cast members a.k.a. employees and a grand fireworks display to bid the last night of summer farewell.
