Kapuso Stars Invade Aklan’s ‘Ati-Atihan Festival’

A livelier and more upbeat celebration of this year's Ati-Atihan Festival - widely-known as the "Mother of All Festivals" - is set to happen on January 14, as GMA Network sends some of its hottest stars to Kalibo, Aklan to participate in the spectacular fete.


A Kapuso Night filled with dancing, music and other merry-making activities takes place at the Pastrana Park at 6:00 PM. Set to lead the celebration are lovely Kapuso leading ladies Kris Bernal and Louise delos Reyes, together with Party Pilipinas mainstay Mark Bautista.

Meanwhile, last January 11, the Network brought two of its homegrown hearththrobs, Aljur Abrenica and Mark Herras, to the province. They graced the “Mutya Ag Lakan It Kalibo 2013 Grand Pageant Finale and Coronation Night” which happened at the Gov. Augusto B. Legaspi Sports and Cultural Center.

Aljur serenaded the female contestants while Mark acted as one of the event’s judges. In this year’s pageant, a total of 24 finalists vied for the crown and titles of Mutya and Lakan of Kalibo Ati-Atihan.

GMA Iloilo Station Manager, Mr. Jonathan Cabillon, says “GMA Network is very much excited to take part in one of the most colorful and rhythmic Philippine Festivals, the Ati-Atihan. Our artists have prepared long and hard for their participation, and we look forward to the Kapusong Aklanons’ delight.”

The full details of the Network’s participation in the 2013 Ati-Atihan Festival will be featured in the weekly travelogue “Let’s Fiesta” airing on January 27 via the Network’s regional stations in Bicol, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Dagupan, Ilocos, GenSan, Bacolod, and CDO.
