Photos – Kapamilya Karavan featuring John Lloyd Cruz, Rivermaya, Maricar Reyes, Nikki Valdes, Dennis Padilla and CDO local bands

The Kapamilya Karavan 2009 in Cagayan de Oro City, Mindanao was a major success! The fun event, which was made possible by ABS CBN and SM City CDO, was held last August 28, 2009 (the very day CDO celebrated the Kagay-An Festival 2009!) at the Gran Via Lot, Pueblo de Oro. Virtually thousands and thousands of people came to watch the free show, which was the organizers’ way of thanking the public for their continuous support.

Mindanaoan was there because I was tapped to book two local bands (thank you, ABS CBN Manila!) Mindanaoan was also one of the official event photographers 🙂 [the other one that I got was my brother hehe…but of course, right? 🙂 ] Check out some of the photos that I took during the Kapamilya Karavan event in Cagayan de Oro below.

Apart from the M.O.R. deejays and MAG TV Ato Ni hosts, Kapamilya celebrities also came — John Lloyd Cruz, Maricar Reyes and Nikki Valdes. Enchong Dee was also supposed to come but the poor guy caught dengue so only a live phone patch was arranged that night. Enchong greeted the thousands of people while confined at St. Luke’s Hospital. Hopefully, he’s doing better now.

Dennis Padilla served as a guest host that night and Manila band Rivermaya also came. Unfortunately, it rained so heavily just when the celebrities were about to appear on stage so the show was cut short. Moreover, Rivermaya fans also got disappointed because their favorite band ended up not performing at all. The drum set and other sound equipment were too wet and the tech guys didn’t want to take a risk, lest that the electrical stuff get grounded.

Still, the night was successful and I warmly congratulate the ABS CBN Cagayan de Oro, ABS CBN Manila and SM City CDO staff for a job well done.

Cheers and I look forward to working with you again very soon!
