Pop District Bazaar 2018: Polar Express

Updated: Dec 1, 2018

This coming, December 10 to 11 2018 will be the 10th ever POP District Bazaar at THE MANDANI BAY and because it's the Christmas season, the entrance is FREE!!

My twin (jasmin) and I were invited to the media launch at The Median showroom, along with the other influencers for #PDB2018. They prepared a great program for us along with some awesome prizes and food and they discussed about this year's theme.

So what is the theme this time?

#PDBHoliday2018: More Reasons To Love Your Own

They say that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year to celebrate love and life with our family and friends. It is when we are reminded that a kind gesture like giving, leaves a lasting effect that may change another person’s life.

As for Pop District Bazaar, it does not only give shoppers and homegrown businesses an ultimate shopping experience; but it aims to continue spreading the essence of hope, joy and purpose.

Hope is how this food and lifestyle bazaar was started by District Events, with a vision to promote local, online and start-up businesses since it began in 2015. It continues to help educate starting entrepreneurs with the basic skills they need to compete in the bigger market by giving them a platform to physically reach out to a potential clientele.

Joy within a 2-day affair that showcases an outdoor dining area, never ending freebies, local music, an avenue to shop pre-loved items and a chance to meet and greet local or national influencers.

Purpose to continuously create a proactive community that supports and understands each other, as what Charmaine Ong De Leon, General Manager of District Events, says, “It’s not just for these entrepreneurs to discover their market, and how they can improve their product; but it’s also for Cebuanos, in general, to celebrate and discover what their local businesses can offer. The idea really here is to support local.”

Make this season worthwhile as we are close to wrapping up 2018 cause’ Pop District Bazaar is here again for one last time this year to celebrate its 10th run with #PDBHOLIDAY2018. Expect over 100 participating merchants to choose from this coming December 10-11, at The Tent, Mandani Bay from 3:00 PM to 12:00 MN. Entrance is for FREE.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, indeed.

Aside from this, what else can we expect? Well, it's going to be a very family-oriented event because POP District Bazaar prepared a play pen and other fun activities for the kids! So you can take your children and SHOP SHOP SHOP! Also, they will be having a fashion show with FIDA! So expect the best for this RUN!

For the transport, there will be ANGKAS drivers around the area. You can also get a discount with the code ANGKASTOPDB. Also, for a minimum purchase of Php 300.00 from the bazaar you can avail a FREE RIDE! PDB has really made it easier for everyone!

After discussing about #PopDistrictBazaar2018 we were asked to ask questions if we had any and we were having a fun quiz of some sort, it was fun and Jasmin and I got to win some freebies!

We had a great time at the media launch and we even had a chance to do quick tour in The Median Showroom, who is one of their sponsors by the way. We also got a glimpse of some of the participants that will be in the bazaar(see below).

Thank you again for inviting us Pop District.

See you all this coming, December 10-11, 2018!!
