Kapuso stars brighten up the country’s biggest festivals this January

It was indeed a colorful and festive start of the year for both the Kapuso stars and their supporters through the initiatives of GMA Regional TV and Synergy in bringing the ongoing and upcoming shows to different regions across the country to take part in the celebration of some of the country’s biggest festivals.

An Ati-Atihan experience like no other

Ruru Madrid

This year’s Ati-atihan Festival was made extra memorable with the special participation of Primetime Action Hero Ruru Madrid and his co-star Jon Lucas from the top-rating primetime show Black Rider, Joem Bascon and Liezel Lopez from the exceptional drama series Asawa ng Asawa Ko, and Sparkle artists Rocco Nacino, Andrea Torres, and Martin Javier.

It was a splendid night to remember at the Binibini ng Kalibo Ati-atihan 2024 held last January 12 at the ABL Sports Complex in Kalibo, Aklan, as Rocco used his charm in serenading the candidates, while Andrea dazzled with elegance as she sat as one of the judges in the competition. Martin also enlivened the evening with his very remarkable hosting skills.

Meanwhile, good vibes and high energy filled Pastrana Park in Kalibo last January 18 as Ruru, Jon, Joem, and Liezel showcased some heart-fluttering and entertaining performances in the Kapuso Fiesta, attended by a big, lively crowd.
The stars of Black Rider and Asawa ng Asawa Ko felt the festive spirit even more as they also experienced tree planting and tried some exotic food in Bakhawan Nature Study and Eco-Park.
Ruru expressed his gratitude for the warmth welcomed by the Kapusong Aklanons.
“Kapag naanyayahan po kami ulit dito sa Kalibo, Aklan, talagang hindi po kami magdalalawang-isip na puntahan po kayo dahil sa saya,” the Black Rider star says.

A special back-to-back treat from the Kapuso Network also made the Sinulog Festival 2024 extra vibrant as Ultimate Star Jennylyn Mercado from GMA Prime’s Love. Die. Repeat., together with Gabby Concepcion and Max Collins from the upcoming show My Guardian Alien, brought kilig to the Cebuanos through the Kapuso Fiesta at Ayala Center Cebu, Cebu City, on January 19.
