PinoyWatchDog.com, one of the main presenting sponsors states on their website article that: Mutch Carino, the primary producer of this event, is always looking for an interesting way to present a Filipino Festival for all generations of Filipinos. Carino has been at this for a long time. He started with events at Knotts Berry Farm and Universal Studios in 1994 that are in the record books for being among the best attended Filipino events in America. He has also held events over the years at Magic Mountain and Cal State Northridge. His goal — that Filipinos have a place to take the whole family for the day for a good time.
So Pistahan’s goal starts by renting out the open-air residential streets of the CBS Studios Soundstage Backlot, where such television classics as Gunsmoke, Gilligan’s Island, Get Smart, My Three Sons, Bob Newhart, Mary Tyler Moore, as well as Roseanne, Different World, Thirtysomething, St. Elsewhere, Hill Street Blues, Falcon Crest, Seinfeld, Grace Under Fire, 3rd Rock from the Sun, CSI:NY, Will & Grace, Big Brother and That 70’s Show, were produced.
Then there is entertainment to be hosted by Bernardo Bernardo, among others, there will be non-stop entertainment from the time the gate opens at 11 a.m. till closing with Jazz.
Original Pilipino Music, Rock and Roll and traditional kundiman ballads. In short, music for everyone of all ages and interests. (Hey, you want to perform?, see if Mutch can fit you in.) There will also be a showcase of modern and cultural dance and a Kiddie Karnival. Promotional materials inform us that the best BBQ, burgers and more from leading food vendors will be on hand for everyone’s enjoyment.
And there is more.
‘Pistahan sa CBS Studio Center’ will also have a Tiangge, which literally means a Pinoy Flea Market — a shopping haven for the bargain hunters. It’s a “tiangge” in the traditional sense – where everyone will have the chance to negotiate for deals on used and new goods. Just watching Filipinos negotiate is entertainment!
And then not to be outdone, there will be a Saturday night ‘Yellow Party’ that Carino describes off handedly as ‘it’s just a party with bikini dancers in the middle.’ Indeed, the beauty of the event is that it does not try to be something it is not, and is seeking to have the entire community be involved. And speaking of beauties, Kaylee Calaguas, Southern California’s own Mutya Ng Philipinas 2012 will be in attendance and available to have your picture taken with her!
With all this fun, Gandi Skin Care and Maxx Promos, are aware of their responsibility to the community, and are providing the Filipinos Against Crab Mentality Movement (FACMM) by helping create mass awareness and exposure about the importance of having a mindset of unity – “Tulong-tulong sa Pagsulong! Sama-sama at Magkaisa!”.
“FACMM is being provided a free booth at the event so attendees can be reminded that they should help one another succeed instead of pulling each other down.” said Attorney and Senior Editor of PinoyWatchDog.com Joel Bander.
Additionally, the ‘Yellow’ theme is mindful of the event’s close anniversary of the August 21, 1983, anniversary of Ninoy Aquino’s assassination. When questioned about that, Carino became more somber, and said he wanted to have a bigger event next year to honor the slain hero.
The organizers also want to provide awards to accomplished members of the community. But being mindful of the stain of ‘false’ awards, they are devising a plan whereby there are 7-10 judges who will independently evaluate the nominees, and the judges will not even know each other. Seems like the right way to determine ‘winners’, not by a single person who is being paid to give out the awards.
And because this is such a wholesome, non-phony community event, PinoyWatchDog.com has agreed to be one of its primary sponsors!
So mark your calendar for August 25 and 25, 2012. And if you do not have a yellow outfit, start looking around.
