Back in high school, we all loved the school fair: we get an excuse to roam around campus tied--or to get "married"--to our crush; we can pull a prank on our friends and send them to "jail"; and we get to see and experience fun booths within the school grounds. And while Cosmo chicks like us are way past the high school era, we love to bring the fun memories back. We got a chance to relive them recently when we attended the event of our sister magazine, Candy: the Candy Fair, which is like a school fair--only cooler!
Held last Saturday, October 9, at the A. Venue Events Hall in Makati, the Candy Fair marked the 11th anniversary celebration of this popular magazine for teens (and future Cosmo chicks, we're sure). After all, at that tender age, Candy readers already go crazy over loads of cute guys they call the Candy Cuties. A lot of these Cuties are in fact Cosmo hunks, too! But unlike the Bachelor Bash where hot guys walk down the ramp, these Cuties get to mingle with the girls, school fair-style. Think: going to "jail" with celebrities and Candy Cuties!
There was also a star-studded program hosted by Starstruck V Ultimate Male Survivor Steven Silva and Star Magic talent Megan Young. The program started with the parade of Candy Cuties onstage, to the delight of the wild, screaming crowd of teenage girls!
PBB Teen Clash’s Ryan Bang, Ivan Dorschner, Bret Jackson, and Patrick Sugui danced to the tune of “2012” by Jay Sean, and Bret serenaded the ladies with a song number, “Can’t Stand It." Other special guests included Sam Concepcion; Cosmo Online Hunks Jose Sarasola and Nico Ibaviosa; Starstruck V’s Rocco Nacino, Ian Batherson, Enzo Pineda, and Sef Cadayona; and Gigger Boys’ AJ Perez and Enrique Gil.
The finale featured the current hottest stars for teenage Pinays: Candy cover boys Elmo Magalona and Martin del Rosario. Elmo’s younger brother, Arkin, was also there to perform a song number!
Cosmo.ph got the chance to go backstage, where all the celebrities and Candy Cuties hung out and practiced before they appeared onstage. Take a peek when you click the ‘View Gallery’ button below.
Our sister site, Candymag.com, recently got a makeover! Check it out (for more yummy Cuties who will be future Cosmo hunks!) and tell your younger kikay sister about it, too!
