The street was closed. The tents were pitched. The food trucks were parked. And magic, the kind you’d associate with a carnival, was in the air.
Exciting times were once again to be had in the City That Makes It All Happen.
Indeed, for the neighborhood, it was a Sunday like no other, because on the sixth of May, 2018, Makatizens gathered round for Makati Street Meet: Carnival, an event filled with food, games, music, entertainment, and good cheer.
And if you missed it, don’t worry, for we here at Make It Makati would like to give you a look back on the fun things that happened that day…
( Oh, and if you’re asking, “Will there be another one?” Of course! Makati Street Meet is a monthly street celebration hosted by Make It Makati and Ayala Land to foster the spirit of community in our city.)
Paseo de Roxas was closed down for the carnival-themed street party.
The lady was so stoked about the Street Meet that she even wore a carnival mask for the festivities.
Kids try their hand at carnival games such as the Ring Toss. Prizes such as candies and chocolates were awarded to the winners.
Abracadabra! A show by a master magician highlighted the event, stunning the audience with sleigh-of-hand tricks left and right.
An enthralled audience watch the magic show at Makati Street Meet.
One of the best-sellers of the night was Wagyu Japanese Beef Cubes. Indeed, they were lip-smackingly delicious.
Nikki Nava and a slew of buskers sang their hearts out as the night went on.
