Where to take dad on Father's Day
Wheels, tech, and grills in BGC
Bonifacio Global City treats fathers to things they love this coming weekend, June 16 to 17.
Returning to Bonifacio High Street for the third time this year, the “Wheels, Tech, and Grills” will showcase a wide range of automobiles, gadgets, accessories, and more.
“BGC teamed up with different groups this year—ranging from auto, tech, retail, and food to bring a bigger and brighter Father’s Day celebration,” said Sean Luarca, marketing, and community relations manager of BGC.
Part of Bonifacio High Street will transform into a car haven of the newest and hottest lineup of automobiles from renowned makers like Bentley, Mercedes Benz, and Harley Davidson, plus rare classics from global car brands. Dads can rub elbows with other car enthusiasts, join a car club, or take part in a die-cast car swap meet led by Diecast PH.
Tech-savvy dads will enjoy exploring a wide collection of gadgets—from the latest PCs and laptops to virtual reality/augmented reality gears and cameras. Dads can try out some of the most popular video games from Sony Play Station and other gaming devices, courtesy of DataBlitz and Summit Media. They can also take part in Bosch’s workshop on using the newest power tools at the DIY corner.
Style-conscious dads can score great finds in “Market Meet Up,” a new offering in this year’s event. Accessories and other fancy items from Urban Traveler, Gouache Bags, Pacaro Leather, and many more are available.
There will also be a lineup of food pop-ups serving yummy grub and cold bottles of beer. It’s also the time for dads to catch up with their squad—play a game of hoops or join the quiz night courtesy of Top Gear Philippines.
To complete the fun Father’s Day weekend experience, Franco and True Faith (June 16) as well as Quest, Rouge Band, Johnoy Danao, and Leanne and Naara (June 17) will be staging a free live concert from 7:00 p.m. onwards at the Bonifacio High Street Amphitheater.
