Ortigas Street Fiesta

Thursday, June 28, 2012

Last Sunday morning, the Twerp and I went over to Emerald Avenue in Ortigas Center to check out the Street Fiesta. I saw a flyer at work and though it would be fun for Via. Besides, it's free!


The whole length of Emerald Avenue was closed from end to end. There were tricycles and bicycles of all kinds. Right away Via wanted to get on the bike so we rented this two-seater for P60/15 minutes.



There were food from Bancheto. We didn't have much to eat for breakfast and we soon got hungry.Via found the crepe to her liking. I knew she would seeing as how it's topped with chocolates and sprinkles and chocolate syrup. We watched the making of our crepe and the finished product looked super.





After polishing off the crepe, we looked around at what else was there. There was a stand courtesy of Dong-a where children can choose a picture to color. They also had a contest with prizes.



Via really doesn't like coloring. She never colors the whole thing just a dash of color here and there.


There was a puppet show with stories like David and Goliath, how to brush you teeth in the morning, etc. specially for children.


Hiphop dance class for grown ups and for kids.



Via and  both had fun. I hope they do this again.

Linking up with Food Trip Friday.

Happy Weekend!

I live in Ortigas, but I didn't know about this. Poor me! Had I known, we would have visited, too! That's a delicious-looking chocolate crepe, by the way!

Too bad! I saw a lot of foreigners with their kids too, probably living around Ortigas.
