You Only Live Once. YOLO. Last weekend, RTL CBS made that phrase happen by bringing fun and entertainment with booths, food and all that glam that comes with stardom.
At the Eastwood Mall Open Park, a carnival themed summer fair was hosted by RTL CBS - their second time around. It featured the network’s diverse mix of shows including Britain’s Got Talent, The X Factor UK, House of Cards, The Odd Couple, and Scorpion, among others, in various attractions.
“The Philippines is an important market for the network. The summer fair is a way of reaching out to more viewers and creating more awareness of the shows that can be viewed first and exclusively on RTL CBS Entertainment,” said Rene Esguerra, Country Head Philippines for RTL CBS Asia.
A special screening of Scorpion and The Odd Couple ran throughout the event to give fans and guests a glimpse of what the cable channel offers. Free popcorn and beverages were given to those who opted to sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
As for feeling like a star, they have a makeover booth sponsored by Ever Bilena. Dreaming of doing your own cover of your favorite song? They have a recording studio where your “ala-The X Factor” performances were recorded on CD.
Families and friends lined up at the booth for a chance to experience that Hollywood “winning moment” complete with replicas of Golden Globe, American Music Awards and Screen Actors Guild trophies, plus souvenir photos. You also get to wear formal coats, feather boas, scarves, and fancy hats, and pose like your favorite movie star.
RTL CBS is home to prestigious award shows including the Critics’ Choice Awards, the Billboard Music Awards, the American Music Awards, the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the People’s Choice Awards and the Golden Globes.
For those who needed more than a new hairstyle, Novuhair provided free hair and scalp consultations at its booth. Kids and the young-at-heart created their own mini donuts at the Krispy Kreme booth. The global doughnut company also gave away free treats
Fans and guests enjoyed a wide array of food choices and beverages, including ice cream from Baskin-Robbins, free drink from Swiss Miss, refreshments from Jamba Juice, and bottles of C2.
Lucky winners also received prizes from sponsors Baskin-Robbins, Krispy Kreme, and C2, as well as unique items such as RTL CBS hoodie bags in the hourly raffle draw. Other partners for this year’s summer fair include SKYcable, Eastwood City Mall, San Miguel, Magnolia Chicken, and RiteMED.
