Thousands of Kapusong Ilocanos warmly welcomed the stars of Encantadia at the Binatbatan Festival of the Arts in Vigan City, Ilocos Sur on May 7.
Around 6,000 people met the new set of Sang’gres Kylie Padilla, Gabbi Garcia, Sanya Lopez, and Glaiza de Castro. It was the first time the four came together for a regional show after they have been officially named as the lead stars of the highly-anticipated “requel” of the GMA telefantasya series “Encantadia.”
Bringing entertainment to the crowd as well during the Kapuso Fiesta were the Sang’gres’ co-stars Ruru Madrid and Rochelle Pangilinan. Kapuso comedy actor Pekto served as event host.
It was a magical night for those gathered at Plaza Burgos in Vigan City as each Kapuso artist was introduced through his/her Encantadia character via an audio visual presentation, giving the audience a glimpse of what to expect in the requel of the groundbreaking GMA primetime series.
“We thank our Kapusong Ilocanos for the warm welcome they extended to our ‘Encantadia’ stars. The annual Binatbatan Festival of the Arts is one of the many regional events that we always look forward to be part of as it celebrates the colorful culture and arts of Vigan, ” says Oliver Amoroso, GMA’s Senior Assistant Vice President for Regional Business Development Division.
