For a child, nothing else matters outside of having fun. Sharing laughs with friends, spending the day with the family, it’s all about having good times and lots of it.
There is probably nothing that can make a child more giddy that the thought of a coming summer. For them, the season is about enjoying the outdoors. Be it running through fields and climbing trees, or enjoying a pleasant picnic with family members and barkadas while watching clouds pass by, summer has and always been high time for kids and grownups alike.
Banana Boat Sunscreen Lotion knows a thing or two about having fun and knows that deep inside everyone is a child waiting to come out and play. From kids who are about to enjoy the vacation from school, parents and yuppies looking to relax and unwind, people of all age and sizes expect the season to be nothing less than fun all around. That is why this sun protection expert is doing whatever it takes to get the young and the young at heart to go outside to enjoy some summer fun.
On March 17, the expanse of the Quezon City Memorial Circle will turn into a huge playground as Banana Boat ushers in the summer season with a bang. The Banana Boat Great Outdoor Fun invites families and friends to head on out and bask in the free-spirited fun of the season.
“Banana Boat will welcome the much anticipated summer season on March 17 and we invite families and barkadas to spend that fun-filled day with us,” says Banana Boat Senior Brand Manager Claire Guevarra. “We promise that there will be plenty of exciting activities and good times in store for the entire family,” Guevarra adds.
The event offers a chance to experience the fun and thrill of the great outdoors. By purchasing a PHP250 activity stub, families or friends of four (4) can try out the different rides and activities within the park. This includes Banana Boat products, Banana Boat premium item, free entrance to the Circle of Fun, and lots of fun and recreation hub within the confines of the QMC.
Kids and adults alike can enjoy Circle of Fun’s amenities including free rides on the carousel and bump cars as well as the Pedal and Paddle, a spot that offers pedaled go-karts that can be used to go around the park or pedaled boats to go around the lagoon. Guests can also admire a bird’s-eye perspective of the grounds on an exhilarating zip-line ride or simply coast on a relaxing bike ride around the area.
Participants can also join a friendly game of Futkal or “Futbol sa Kalye” (Street Football) or learn something fun and new through the kite-making activity. The gang can then immortalize the experience by getting their group picture taken on a free photo booth with a bonus Banana Boat sunscreen lotion for every picture taken. Participants can also get a chance to take home loads of freebies through the different games on stage and enjoy other fun activities including interactive magic and bubble shows.
To make the day even more worthwhile, Banana Boat couples the day’s activities with learning by offering skin care tips to interested participants. By enlisting a dermatologist to hold a talk, the brand offers parents the knowhow on keeping their family’s skin healthy whole year round. This presents a fun and friendly way of knowing more about the dos and don’ts of skincare for the benefit of the entire family.
Indeed, there are plenty of things to do within the 26-hectare expanse of the QMC and the only thing that can get in the way of enjoying every inch of it is the intense heat of the sun. But there’s no need to worry because Banana Boat will also be handing out Banana Boat Sunscreen Lotions to keep participants protected from harmful rays.
With their core products of Banana Boat Ultra Protect SPF-50 and Banana Boat Ultra Protect SPF-80, the brand doesn’t only aim to protect, it also offers an invigorating dose of Aloe Vera, Vitamin C and Vitamin E which takes extra care of the skin. Formulated with its patented AvoTriplex Technology, Banana Boat Sun Screen Lotions makes use of a three-way approach against sunburn using its advanced UVB protection and against long term skin damage with its improved UVA protection which lasts longer than ordinary solutions.
Their line of sunscreen lotions also includes the Banana Boat Sport SPF-50 and SPF-110, designed for active users because of its non-greasy, sweat and water resistant protection. The Banana Boat Kids SPF-50, on the other hand, ensures a mild and gentle, tear free protection.
Summer is right around the corner and there will definitely be tons of adventures and excitement to go along with it. Whatever the sport or activity you’re into, get ready to bask in the glory of the summer sun because with Banana Boat Sunscreen Lotion, we’ve got you covered!
