Now on its 18th edition, the World Bazaar Festival (WBF), the country’s longest running annual charity bazaar, returns with another fantastic holiday presentation! Officially opening its doors last December 12 at the World Trade Center Metro Manila, WBF 2018 held a grand opening ceremony at the lobby of the bazaar venue.
Spotted during the momentous affair were select VIP personalities including DSWD Assistant Sec. Glenda Relova, Justin Brownlee and Renaldo-Balkman with celebrity guests Phoeme Baranda, Miles Ocampo, Dimples Romana and Toni Gonzaga alongside Worldbex Services International’s Founding Chairman Mr. Joseph Ang, Co-Founder Levi S. Ang, Managing Director Jill Aithnie Ang, as well as key officers Rene Ramos and Tessie Roque.
Every Christmas, WBF never fails to mount a spectacular holiday show that gives bazaar goers something new and exciting to look forward to. This year, WBF draws inspiration from the pure and unfiltered memories of yuletides past to present a “Boogie Woobie” Christmas – a retro-inspired celebration that invites everyone to take part in a groovy and nostalgia-infused holiday shindig.
Apart from the awesome bazaar installations and splendid holiday decors inside the bazaar halls, bazaar goers are sure to be impressed by the massive array of shopping finds and fabulous gift ideas that abound at WBF 2018. With nearly 800 booths on display which features top brands, local makers and even foreign retailers. WBF is truly the most incredible one-stop shop for all of your holiday shopping needs.
There’s so much in store for everyone with the fantastic bazaar highlights that await at WBF 2018. Among these include the Designers’ Avenue, where one can find a wide range of branded apparel and accessories at affordable prices as well as the holiday edition of Bloggers United, where fans can meet and shop the closets of the metro’s top fashion and beauty bloggers.
Another star-studded affair at WBF 2018 is the Celebrity Pavilion, a designated area within the bazaar where local celebrities set up their own booths to sell brand new products as well as their own pre-loved clothes and belongings. Aside from the unique shopping finds, the Celebrity Pavilion is also a great way for fans to get up close and personal with their favorite showbiz personalities. Other bazaar zones to check out include the Christmas Village, BFAR and Department of Agriculture Pavilion.
Knowing full well that the holidays will not be complete without the music, cheers, and festivities, bazaar goers are also in for a treat with the family-centered events that will be held throughout the 11-day run of WBF such as the Streetdance Competition, Himig ng Pasko, Woobie’s Kid Idol Competition and Christmas Carol with the Angels
After a productive day of shopping, bazaar goers can recharge and unwind over a plethora of mouthwatering food choices and drinks over at Woobie’s Food World. Before heading home, bazaar goers are also encouraged to drop by at Woobie’s Goodies, a massive food shop where one can find a delectable array of holiday sweets and treats.
