The cast of GMA Network’s child-friendly TV fare, Home Sweet Home, is at Lucena City in Quezon today May 28, to witness how Filipinos celebrate the country’s very own Mardi Gras – the Pasayahan Festival.
Pasayahan, which means “to make happy,” lives up to its name as it has street dancing and festival parades as its highlights annually. And this year, a more colorful and vibrant celebration is set to happen as Kapuso stars Raymart Santiago, Roxanne Guinoo, Jillian Ward, Arthur Solinap, Rochelle Pangilinan, and Ken Chan join in the Pasayahan Grand Parade 2013.
On board a Kapuso float, the Home Sweet Home cast will be parading together with the other participants dressed in their bizarre garbs of various shades and colors at one in the afternoon.
Following the grand parade is a Kapuso Mall Show at SM City Lucena Event Center at five. Joining the cast to enthusiastically provide amusement to the audience are Dance of the Steelbars’ Dingdong Dantes and fast-rising actress Max Collins.
"GMA's Regional TV is happy to join one of the biggest festivals of Quezon. Pasayahan is one of the must-join festivals of the Kapuso Network this year. As Lucena continues to enthrall local and foreign tourists alike because of the city's warmth, GMA stays committed to keep the fiesta spirit alive all year round," says Oliver Amoroso, AVP for Regional TV.
The full details of the Network's participation in the 2013 Pasayahan Festival will be featured in the weekly travelogue "Let's Fiesta" airing on June 30 via the Network's regional stations in Bicol, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Dagupan, Ilocos, GenSan, Bacolod, and CDO. Here are the photos of Kapuso stars
