Non-stop Summer Fun in the South

August 22, 2016

Filinvest City effectively captures the vibrant mood of the summer season through its fun selection of activities and events that cater to all ages and interests.

Filinvest City is becoming a top choice for many who want to enjoy a breather – relax, unwind, and get closer to nature without having to venture far from the city. Beautifully landscaped and expertly masterplanned, Filinvest City makes for the perfect venue for big events and other fun activities especially this summer season.

Here's how Filinvest City made the summer spectacular this 2016. As rising temperatures call for events that would keep you cool and refreshed, it's no wonder that that Filinvest City is a favorite for outdoor events. As such, it served as the proud host of this year's Nivea Slidefest, which was held last April 16 to 17 and attracted thousands of participants, all eager to take advantage of the biggest water slide event in Asia. 

Following one of the most anticipated annual events of the year - the Slidefest, Filinvest City made its Carless Sundays initiative more fun last May 15 by holding a variety of fun activities to better promote engaging in physical outdoor activities especially on weekends. A special Zumba class lead by celebrity host Regine Tolentino was enjoyed by around 350 participants.There was also a community ride which was spearheaded by the volunteer cycling teams who developed additional areas for cyclists to enjoy in the Filinvest City trails.

Back to back outdoor activities were then held on the weekend of May 28 and 29 when Filinvest City held the Manila Blacklight Run and the 6th Shimano Dirt & Play XC Fun Race. More than 8,000 runners participated in the Manila Blacklight Run last May 28 which was capped off by a very festive color festival for the after-run party. 

The following day, Filinvest City served as the host for the 6th Shimano Dirt & Play XC Fun Race. Gathering both seasoned and novice cyclists alike, the event aims to entice Filipino families in engaging in a healthy and active lifestyle. This year's Shimano Dirt & Play XC Fun Race drew up to 1,200 participants. 

Making the most of the summer season, Filinvest City can always be counted on to delight residents and guests alike with a wonderful selection of events and activities that will truly bring them more to the outdoors.
