Family Bee Day 2014 – The Jollibee Way ☺

IMG_20140510_162540 It was a very memorable Mother’s Day weekend wherein thousands of families gathered in five different venues across the country and enjoyed the fun-filled afternoon during Jollibee’s Family Bee Day touted as the grandest picnic ever complete with marching bands and white balloons for all Mom’s.  Awww how su-weet! ♥

The fun family picnic was held simultaneously at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila, Bayanihan Park of Pampanga, the Nuvali football grounds in Laguna, Plaza Independencia of Cebu and in Davao courtesy of Crocodile Park.

I brought along my Mom and youngest sister Mic to this event and we were able to witness the fun at Nuvali football grounds. Met up with some fellow bloggers who where there as well together with their families. It was awesome seeing all of them have a grand time despite the really hot weather.


“We were very happy with the turnout and pleased to see everyone enjoying the company of other people whom they treat like family. Talagang dito sa Jollibee, ang sarap maging pamilya, ” shared Harvey Ong, Jollibee vice president for Marketing. IMG_20140510_153808 Martin Nievera, Klarisse de Guzman and Callalily wowed their fans at the Quirino Grandstand while Yum endorser Julia Barretto, Shaina Magdayao, Rayver Cruz and 6Cyclemind entertained audience at the Bayanihan Park.

At the Plaza Independencia in Cebu, Gerald Anderson, Julie San Jose and Sponge Cola thrilled families and friends. The audience were treated to the presence of Maja Salvador, Slater Young and Imago had cool time with picnic-goers at Crocodile Park. Those who trooped the Nuvali football grounds got super starstruck with Marian Rivera, Erik Santos and Moonstar88 with the latter dishing out their well-loved songs for about an hour.

It was non-stop screaming and photo ops once Erik and Marian came out with a couple of song numbers each for all of us. A couple of male Marian fanatics got extra lucky as both were handpicked by her and had rare conversation onstage. The weather was already hot but these scenes made it even hotter.
Other celebrities like Carmina Villaroel-Legaspi, Regine Tolentino and Vince and Patricia Hizon came with their respective kids, mingled plus had pictures with their fans.

A string of raffle prizes which included watches, Jollibee dancing dolls, gift certificates and a trip to Singapore added spice to the event. I was lucky enough to have won a dozen liter pack of Del Monte Four Seasons juice drink, wohoo! Many thanks Jollibeeeee! ☺

Distribution of Meal Bags was orderly. Concession food booths from other sponsors were also available. The kids had a grand time playing at the inflatable slide  and basketball shootout. I was impressed with the giant picnic basket and special frame wall installation which truly captured fun family moments and my personal favorites!

Hip hip hooray, Jollibee! Hanggang sa susunod na Family Bee Day picnic ulit! ☺


Many thanks to fellow blogger Sol Razo and my appreciation to Ms. Grace of Stratworks for all the media assistance.
