CEBU CITY (Nov. 10, 2010) — Remote control car owners and hobbyists will troop to Banilad Town Centre (BTC) for a 2-day RC Cars Speedfest on Nov. 20 and 21.
While fellow club members led by veteran RC cars race organizer Jon Jarantilla will participate in the speedfest and conduct demonstrations, the activity is open to all teens and young professionals.
“If you have a remote control car, you can come and either participate in the race or just use the track in between race heats to play with your RC cars,” noted a statement from the organizer.
The 100-meter race track can accommodate short-course trucks, mini-coopers, rock crawlers and Tamiya units. Those who have monster trucks may also do demo drives.
The BTC RC Cars Speedfest is a way for BTC to mark the Universal Children’s Day on Nov. 20 with a Kids & Toys Festival that will run towards the following day.
During this weekend, kids will also have the choice to play in either of three open competitions prepared for them. These are:
- Dress-Up Harumika (dolls)
- Lego Showtime
- Battle of Beyblades
Dress-Up Harumika will search among the girls for Cebu’s future couturier who will create the best dress for a Harumika doll in the morning of Nov. 20, 10am to 12nn.
By 2pm also on Nov. 20, the boys and younger teens can take part in the Battle of Beyblades that may run until 5pm. Participants may bring their own beyblades or use available demo units.
By 2pm on Nov. 21, kids aged 5 to 11 will have the opportunity to showcase their creativity on various figures they will be made to build in the Lego “Showtime” Building Competition.
Lego blocks will be provided for the activity.
Families with Lego creations at home may bring these to and exhibit them at BTC and have the chance to win special prizes from Lego.
Those who wish to participate in these activities must register ahead at BTC to ensure their slots. No registration fee will be asked from the participants.
For inquiries, one may call BTC at 345-3260 or Toys@Work at 346-5802, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the Facebook sites of BTC and Toys@Work or search these activities through Facebook events.
