The 100th Anniversary celebration of University of the Philippines Alumni Association, banners by the theme “Bagong Siglo. Bagong Sigla.” takes off on a rousing start on March 24, 2013, Palm Sunday, with an activity-filled “Family Fiesta.”
The early morning running event will be followed at 9:00AM by a tennis tournament organized by the UP Alumni Tennis Association. In and around And Bahay ng Alumni, visiting alumni and their family members can enjoy and/or win prizes in various fiesta and parlor games, such as palo sebo, buko sebo, piñata, pabitin, “pin the donkey’s tail,” scrabble, checkers, dama, sungka, and others.
Brass bands will parade in the streets adjoining the Academic Oval. Fiesta booths offering food and beverages, souvenir items, or fair-style games and prizes will be set up by UP Varsity teams and others around Ang Bahay.
From 1:00-6:00PM, the “Bagong Siglo Bingo” will be held in the main hall of Ang Bahay ng Alumni. Bingo cards will be available for only P200 apiece. Prizes at stake are gadgets and home appliances.
