UP Fair is one of my most anticipated events every year. Aside from the simple affiliation of being a UP alumna, I’ve had a blast during UP Fairs during my college years and even after graduation. It’s really different whenever I’m there. I feel I’m home. Even though many people say that UP fairs are always dangerous and unsafe to go, I really don’t care. During UP Fairs, the crowds are always a mixture of the grungy emo kids, UP and non-UP students, yuppies, artists and many more. Watching bands while I am at the audience is always a thrill for me and it really doesn’t matter if I stand for a couple of hours.
Boto Mo, Patrol Mo Booth at the UP Fair – since National Elections is coming, it’s good that kids will be aware and can be a citizen journalist by signing up on this one. Karla and I signed up and we can report election-related news in our areas.
Koreans Dancing – Funny thing to see at the UP Fair. They are promoting something, just saw these young Koreans do their thing.
Unique and funny signages are always at the UP Fair. This is a spoof of Michael Jackson’s “This is It” concert. They sell anything for 10 pesos.
This is another funny signage. Ikaw ba, natusok na? Hahaha.
Who didn’t have a moment at the Ferris Wheel?
Isaw is associated with UP so UP Fair is not complete without the eating it!
I don’t mean to say that everyone who goes to the UP Fair are emos but their presence is definitely felt.
Of course, the bands will always be present during UP Fairs. Here’s Jugs Jugueta from Itchyworms and below is Kelvin Yu, bassist of Itchyworms.
Giniling Festival has always been the UP crowd’s favorite. They’re songs are very witty and very catchy. I love these guys!
Romeo Lee performed with Marcus Adoro’s band, Markus Highway. UP Fair is not complete without Romeo’s presence! They performed “Wild Thing”.
One of Sonic Boom’s bands, Bloodshedd made the hardcore rockers slam dance through the night.
Ebe Dancel of Sugarfree
The main acts that I was waiting for at that night was the performance of Sugarfree and Silent Sanctuary together with the Manila Symphony Orchestra. As usual, the performances were breath-taking.
Sarkie Sarangay of Silent Sanctuary
