A Floriad festival for Dad
Written by: Vanessa B. Hidalgo
It’s hard to put into words how much fathers mean to us as they always take on the quiet yet crucial role in the family. Children look up to them as heroes while wives lean on them for support. Fathers are the great force that binds a family together.
What better way to celebrate fathers than to show them your appreciation for all the hard work and love they have poured to keep the family safe and secure. Whether it’s your biological dad, the father of your own kids, the man who raised you, or the guys who have been like dads to you, Father’s Day is the perfect day to raise your glass to the man who has devoted his life to make sure that you have everything you need to survive in this world.
Go on a date with your dad at Floriad Lifestyle, the newest entertainment central and lifestyle destination located in dynamic southern Metro Manila. The upcoming estate masterpiece by the Villar Group rises at the nexus of C-5 Extension Road and Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
The endless rows of vibrantly colored flowers in Floriad Lifestyle, which was inspired by Australia’s yearly flower festival, will surely remind you of the days when you and your dad would go to the park early in the morning for a quiet stroll. With 75 percent of its total land area dedicated to green landscaped spaces that is dotted with picture-perfect parks, floral gardens and pathways, Floriad Lifestyle will be a great way for you and your Dad to increase your step goal while marveling at the wonders of nature.
Exceptional retail experience
The quaint charm and breathtaking beauty of the flowers provide the perfect backdrop to this premier development by Vista Mall, which officially launches today (Saturday).
To celebrate this momentous occasion, an inauguration ceremony is being led today by no less than the Villar Group’s chair, Manuel B. Villar Jr., right on the grounds of Floriad Lifestyle.
Now is truly the best time to be at Floriad Lifestyle—not only because of the grand opening, but also due to the fact that over a thousand sunflowers in its secret garden are currently in full bloom. This is the perfect opportunity for you, your dad, and the entire family to take beautiful photos you’ll cherish for a lifetime. Plus, the sight of sunflowers looking up to the sky is an experience that will surely give off feelings of happiness and positivity.
And with its curated selection of brands and concepts, Floriad Lifestyle, indeed, offers an exceptional retail, dining and recreational experience for guests of all ages.
But that’s not all. Floriad Lifestyle is hosting numerous activities this weekend to cater to a wide range of hobbies and pursuits.
Lace up your sneakers with dad and start the day right with the floral fun run. Or go back to basics and learn how to fly a kite with the man who has been there to provide wind for our sails. You can learn, too, how to build amazing kites with experts from the Kite Flying Association of the Philippines.
Want to take it easy? Sit back with the fam and enjoy the giant inflatables installed within the grounds. Keep the little ones busy with paint-a-gnome activity while you try your hand at painting at Sip and Gogh. Watch how you can create a work of art with the man who has taught you to appreciate the colors of life.
Rent a bike and pedal your way through breathtaking views and vibrant hues while increasing your stamina and strength. You can also take a clay pottery class to learn the basics or watch enchanting performances at the highly anticipated Full Bloom Children’s Musical in the afternoon. As the sun sets, find yourselves being mesmerized by the beauty of the sunflower field as you see these blooms glow amid the colorful, dancing display of lights at Floriad Lifestyle’s trail of lights.
As the evening draws to a close, dance the night away at The Night Fest with Sixty Four! A fun-filled celebration awaits Floriad Lifestyle’s beautiful crowd. With the upbeat music of DJ Christian Tiu, a fantastic bartending show, and the ultimate beer challenge, the night will surely end on a high note to cap off the celebration for the most amazing man in your life.
