DAVAO CITY, Philippines — Our flight from Manila was full of passengers eager to attend the Araw ng Dabaw festivities. Marco Polo Hotel was buzzing with guests because Kapamilya Karavan was in town to make this fun-filled weekend more colorful. ABS-CBN Regional Network Group (RNG) flew in the cast of Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin: Coco Martin and Maja Salvador, with Ron Morales and Erik Santos.
In an exclusive coverage with ABS-CBN corporate communication manager Kathy Solis, we witnessed how security personnel stood ready to protect thousands of men, women and children from overeager fans who might forcibly break the barriers to get a glimpse of their favorite stars at SM City Davao Parking Lot.
Everyone screamed when Erik performed OPM songs. The crowd got a closer look at the Prince of Pop when he went down the stage. Ron serenaded the audience. He elicited shrieks when he threw his shirt to the crowd.
