As the Peńafrancia executive council reconvened, the city of Naga officially began its preparations for this year's Peńafrancia Festival. September is once again just around the block. Of course, when we talk about September here in Bicol, we can not not deal with the feast of our dearly loved "Ina", the Lady of Peńafrancia.
Avenue Square made its presence felt big time last year with its "Awesome September" campaign. While the entire management and staff of Avenue Square and its sister companies participated in the religious and more essential events of the festival with our bosses (the Cu family whom a lot of Bicolanos know to be very religious, philanthropic, and generous to the Church and its ministries) leading the way, as a lifestyle hub in Bicol, Avenue Square also made it a point that it contributed to the colorful celebration of the festival.
"Awesome September" was a huge success. It was, well, truly awesome! We had some of the biggest and most attended events last year under its banner, like the SMB grand street party that featured, among other Manila party bands, recording artists Imago; the Lisam Extreme Trans Show, considered by many as the biggest trans show (combination of cars and motorbikes show) ever staged here in Bicol (Avenue Square partnered here with Lisam Enterprises, Bicol's most trusted and leading one-stop-shop for car owners); the Brownman Revival (a very popular reggae band/recording artists) concert and the FHM fashion show (that featured sexy FHM male and female models) which were part of the same Lisam Trans Show; and the Wings Tour that was top-billed by the all-Ateneo Parokya ni Edgar, a Filipino band who has been dubbed as the "Pambansang Banda ng Pilipinas" for its almost iconic status and phenomenal success in the music industry that has already spanned over two decades (I would'nt wonder if bands of the future would one day come up with a tribute album for this group, in the same breath as the tribute albums made by bands of today for Eraserheads and the APO Hiking Society). The Miss Bicolandia 2006 pageant (that had by the way Beatriz Saw, a fellow alumus of Ateneo's Media Studies Department and member our college clique "Babytoys", of Pinoy Big Brother 2 fame as one of the candidates) even had its post-pageant dinner at the Avenue Convention Plaza.
With all of these said, Avenue Square is opening its doors to interested corporate partners for its upcoming September campaign. I have uploaded here the communiqué that I and my team had composed in connection with this.
