Every February, we all look forward to the biggest musical event happening at the Sunken Garden of the University of the Philippines Diliman – the UP Fair. More than just a musical event, there are food booths and little stores selling all kinds of interesting stuff and offering services like henna tattoos, palm reading, and the likes. There are also fair rides like the ferris wheel and the octopus, among others (but of course I have to say ferris wheel because it is absolutely my favorite ride of all time), and all kinds of booths offering freebies, from condoms to photos, depending on participating sponsors. You get my drift. In effect, we can say that aside from the Lantern Parade, with the corresponding Oblation Run, and our graduations with the sunflowers, it IS the biggest event of the campus every year. One whole week of all these things! How much fun can it get?!
I can say much about the UP Fair, but I will reserve that for the next week when I might be blogging about every single night I am there, or maybe just one or two, depending on my very hectic schedule. Let me say this for sure though, UP Fair 2013, we are so ready for you! Are you ready for us though?
Here are the most updated schedule, line-up, and other relevant information regarding the UP Fair 2013.
Do come back here for updates in the coming days.
One important thing is: the ticket prices are now standardized, as opposed to previous years when ticket prices varied depending on the host organization or the line-up, but this year, every night, the ticket price is Php100. Such an awesome deal that “affordable” could not possibly be more than an understatement.
So, UP Fair 2013, we are really so ready for you! And we know that you never disappoint.
