After drawing 10,000 attendees in 2009, TFC’s One Kapamilya Go returns to California’s Great America in Santa Clara, California promising a slam-bang event packed with world-class performances, high-energy numbers, merchandise, activity and Filipino food booths, free film screenings together with the park’s thrill and family rides, KidZville, the new Planet Snoopy and other family attractions. The main show will be at the park’s Redwood Amphitheatre but activities will be up to the Picnic Pavilion area. One Kapamilya Go is a specially ticketed event which gives guests access to the festival area, shows and California's Great America theme park.
The major difference this year for One Kapamilya Go is that TFC is putting the Filipinos in the U.S. on center stage by way of bringing the entire cast of the top-rated TFC talent show, “Showtime”
Starry Starry Store will hold several screenings of a special movie in two theatres this year: Great America Theatre and Showtime Theatre. Seating will be on a first come, first served basis. Last year, all screenings of the movie, “And I Love You So” starring Sam Milby, Bea Alonzo and Derey Ramsay drew capacity crowds at the Great America Theatre.
MYX®, America’s only music entertainment and lifestyle channel dedicated to the Asian American community, will have its own talent showcase and youth attractions in the Picnic Pavilion.
“This is the culminating event for TFC Summer Saya sa America so expectations are flying high,” said Jun Del Rosario, TFC Business Unit Head and ABS-CBN International Senior Director for Cable & Satellite. “But we’re very excited with our line-up and concept for this year, especially because we’re creating a very interactive main show and we’re letting the people be the real stars of the show. Attendees – who mostly come as families or in groups - are in for a truly grand time.”
“We always try to set the bar higher for One Kapamilya Go as far as quality entertainment and event experience are concerned, said ABS-CBN International Managing Director Olivia De Jesus. “Since 2008, we’ve had a record of huge attendance and an overall satisfaction among our supporters, sponsors, vendors and partners. We intend to keep it that way: a win-win for all year in and year out for the event.
One Kapamilya Go sa California’s Great America is presented by ABS-CBN International in cooperation with the Bay Area College of Nursing, Globe Telecom, the Law Offices of Michael J. Gurfinkel, Inc., Ramar Foods International and Western Union.
