EVENT: Escolta Block Party This Weekend

9:00 AM

Come to the Escolta Block Party this weekend and help breathe new life to this beloved part of Manila!

I have a spot spot for this area of Manila, with having much heritage buildings still standing. Though when I do visit this part of the city, it’s a bittersweet experience to see them standing yet still very much in need of some TLC from all of us. I hear people – local and foreign – stay that Manila is bereft of history and culture. But you see, we do and there are people out there who have done most of the huge work! Case in point are the courageous people behind the rebirth of Escolta. All they need for us to do is support them and help celebrate this part of the Metro.

So this weekend, why not drop by Escolta Block Party and show some love?  

Food, Music, and Art await in this weekend's party along Escolta St. in Manila.
