RTL CBS Entertainment took fun and entertainment to a higher notch by bringing shows from the television screen to a theme park with booths that gave fans a taste of stardom.
The network staged last weekend (May 21 to 22) a carnival-style summer fair at Eastwood Mall Open Park. Now on its second year, the summer fair 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 shows.
Ala-The X Factor Performances of Pinoys who got talent
Fair goers proved that Filipinos are talented as they sang their hearts out at the RTL CBS Entertainment Talent Studio. Like reality show contestants, the participants belted out as if they were onstage. Some danced as they sang popular tunes, while others even played the guitar. And just like rock stars and pop singing sensations, their “ala-The X Factor” performances were recorded on CD.
Hollywood ‘winning moment’
After unleashing their singing prowess, visitors went for an A-list red carpet pictorial at the RTL CBS Awards Photo Booth. 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. Wearing formal coats, feather boas, scarves, and fancy hats, they posed like their favorite movie stars.
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.
Star makeover and more
The fun didn’t stop with the TV-themed booths. Games and other fun activities completed the festive mood at the summer fair. Cosmetics brand Ever Bilena made the TV fans look like stars. Everyone who went to the fair was entitled to a free makeover. For those who needed more than a new hairstyle, Novuhair provided free hair and scalp consultations at its booth.
Fun and food for everyone
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-Robinns, 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.
