Manila’s 1st Picnic Pop-Up
Gone are the days of hanging out in the backyard, lying on the grass while basking under the sun or just simply playing around outside the streets with your good ol’ neighbors who, like you, have grown and aged as time went by, and slowly, have adapted to the urban jungle the Metro has become.
Well, some guys decided to bring back these precious moments to life once again! CAPTIVATE MANILA captivates our aged souls by organizing Manila’s 1st Picnic Pop-up happening at Burgos Park at Bonifacio Global City on August 15 from 1:00 PM – 9:00 PM.
The event lets you experience fun the way it was when digital tech-toys like our smartphones haven’t kept us preoccupied yet—instead it will let us experience the joy of hanging with people in the backyard, enjoying the sun and outdoors, accompanied by good food and music, and of course, the people.
The event will host many activities such as old-school games, arts and crafts sessions, educational workshops for kids, and workshops also for the young at heart, and will be concluded by an outdoor flash mob four-course dinner under the moon and stars.
The itinerary of the event is divided into two:
HAVE FUN UNDER THE SUN (1:00 PM – 6:00PM)
The afternoon is an energetic time for enjoying the arts & crafts bazaar, old-school games, a yoga class, a capoeira workshop, pyrography, and an interactive art mural.
DINE UNDER THE STARS (6:00 PM – 9:00PM)
Revel under the moon and stars for the first-ever outdoor flash mob dinner for picnic guests, surrounded by lanterns and accompanied by live acoustic music. It’ll be a feast for the eyes, the picnic-inspired dinner will showcase the comfort food and artisanal cuisines of nearby restaurants along Burgos Park. It’s a 4-course dinner along with family, friends, and other awesome people.
Bring your family and friends and reminisce the good old times together with great company.
p.s. attire is dressy casual and come in white if you can.
