Wednesday, September 4, 2013
AFTER spending quality time with each other during their vacation in Balesin, Quezon and Bali, Indonesia last month, Kapuso Royal Couple Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera return to work and both are now off to bring a special treat to the country's Tuna Capital—General Santos City—as they join in this year's Tuna Festival celebration.
The real-life sweethearts are set to delight their fans via a Kapuso Fans’ Day happening 3 p.m. Thursday, September 5, at the Events and Convention Center of KCC Mall of GenSan.
"It is always nice to get away for a few days with your special someone and come back rejuvenated for work. Actually, marami pa kaming gustong gawin ni Marian but we really need to go back para magtrabaho and here comes the Tuna Festival of GenSan. I am happy and delighted dahil magkakasama ulit kaming dalawa para makapagpaligaya sa supporters namin," shares Dingdong, lead actor of GMA’s forthcoming primetime offering Genesis.
Also happening on the same day is the colorful Tuna Float Parade, with a special coverage from GMA Network that will air on September 15 via the network's regional stations in GenSan, Davao and Cagayan de Oro.
Scheduled the next day, Kapuso versatile actress Chynna Ortaleza will be part of the Fish Fest which will take place at the city’s Fish Port from 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Cast members of primetime soaps Annakarenina and My Husband’s Lover, meanwhile, are set to cap off the festivities via a Kapuso Mall Show on Friday, September 7. At 4 p.m., supporters get to watch Joyce Ching, Krystal Reyes, Julian Trono, Hiro Magalona, Rodjun Cruz, and Bettina Carlos perform live.
The Tuna Festival is an annual week-long celebration highlighting the significant role of the tuna industry—the city’s primary source of income. (PR)
