MANILA, Philippines — GMA Network through its regional arm, GMA Regional TV, brought some of its stars to Davao City to join in the 33rd Kadayawan Festival.

Onanay stars Jo Berry, Mikee Quintos, Kate Valdez, Rochelle Pangilinan, Vaness del Moral and Enrico Cuenca take time out from their busy schedules for a Kapuso Fiesta Mall Show at Gaisano Grand Mall-Davao

Thousands of Davaoeño Kapuso fans attended the Kapuso Fiesta Mall Show last Aug. 18 at Gaisano Grand Mall-Davao. Onanay stars Rochelle Pangilinan and Vaness del Moral brought the house down with song-and-dance performances. The millennial crowd cheered for their favorite Onanay young cast members Kate Valdez, Mikee Quintos and Enrico Cuenca who rendered pop hits and ballads. Onanay lead star Jo Berry also graced the show to thank Davaoeños for their support. “I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, maraming salamat po sa inyong pagtangkilik at abangan nyo pa ang maraming magagandang episodes na darating.”

In the series, Jo plays the loving and kind Onay, who chooses to always look at the brighter side of things. The show is under the direction of Gina Alajar and also stars Nora Aunor, Cherie Gil, Gardo Versoza, Adrian Alandy and Wendell Ramos.

Prior to the Kapuso Fiesta, the Onanay cast visited the Matina Aplaya 75-A Gym for the Kapuso Barangayan.

Sunday morning greeted the locals and tourists with the presence of Alden Richards during the Pamulak sa Kadayawan Float Parade. Alden along with co-stars Pancho Magno, Kristoffer Martin and Dion Ignacio brought kilig on board the Victor Magtanggol float.

In an interview after the parade, Alden described his latest primetime series as a blessing. “Victor Magtanggol is a blessing, wish granted para sa akin dahil binigay sa akin ito ng GMA. Thank you to the comments that (said it has) great storytelling, beautiful effects, characterization or that the relationships of the characters are perfectly made. That makes us feel confident, that we are on the right track and we must continue doing this.”

GMA TV Davao, meanwhile, aired the 2018 Kapuso sa Kadayawan: The One Mindanao Special Live Coverage from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The coverage was hosted by Tek Ocampo, Sarah Hilomen-Velasco, Real Sorroche and Sheillah Vergara-Rubio.
