Nickelodeon Weekend Carnival Fun!

We were able to experience the Nickelodeon Weekend Carnival at the Bonifacio Global City Open Field in Taguig City (behind NBC Tent) last April 26 (Saturday). The free entrance carnival tent opened from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Nickelodeon turned the place into one exciting theme park that sets you on a trail to everything gooey and adventurous. The splatter-filled fun started with Nick signature games, inflatable fun and other sizzling hot stopovers including a face painting station (which smother those who love Go, Diego Go with camouflage or animal prints or lightning bolts for Danny Phantom fans). Way out and more daring Nicksters tried the Jimmy Neutron style paint-on glasses and the wacky color-your-hair station. Sam wasn't able to try these stopovers because of a very long waiting line. There was also this bouncy trampoline rideat Danny Phantom’s Fright Flight that Sam really wanted to try. Of course we didn't allowed her though she's willing to try it...haha! Very brave indeed! There's also the Fairyland-inspired tent where you may catch must-see Dora The Explorer episodes. Of course, nothing beats summer but a “splash down” into Bikini Bottom at SpongeBob SquarePants Bubbling BikiniBottomtent. Here, kids will surely enjoy the bubble show, bubble blowing and of course, a “dive under the sea” of sponge and foam to look for SpongeBob’s pet snail, Gary. Sam and her dad were able to try the "catch patrick star" game where she accumulated some stamps and a cute stickers as prizes. There was also this Aang of Avatar’s Four Nation Action Area where a free-for-all play with earth blocks (clay molding), air balls shooting (balls-in-a-hoop game), knock down fire power balls and hit the bulls eye with your water squirters. Of course, this station was a hit to the little boys.

All throughout the event, Nicksters really made some noise and joined the Nick Parade led by the drum and bugle corps. The kids were awed by stilt walkers, fire eaters, on-stage games and a fascinating fireworks display that ends the exciting day. Too bad, we weren't able to wait for Dora & Boots and watch the fireworks as the grand finale. Sam was already cranky and were already hungry, we leaved at around 7pm. :p
