18 May 2022, Enchanted Kingdom, Santa Rosa, Laguna. On April 28th, the Enchanted Kingdom team invited FEED to partner up on their special celebration honoring Korea’s National Children’s Day to be held on May 7th, 2022 – whereby a donation drive from membership proceeds would be donated to FEED.
The event was highly interactive, wherein around 5,000 attendees came together to learn, enjoy, and be entertained with lots of shows and surprises.

About Enchanted Kingdom
Enchanted Kingdom officially opened in October 19, 1995 as a wonderland of rides, attractions and entertainment. It has been a source of magic, thrill and cheer for generations upon generations of loyal guests for over 26 years.
The theme park boasts of rides and attractions unique to the country in size and magnitude. These rides and attractions are located within seven meticulously themed zones interspersed with food and merchandise outlets and kiosks as well as various game stands that add to the “enchanting experience”, away from the day-to-day realities of life.
Enchanted Kingdom is also a choice venue for (1) personal milestones, such as birthdays, weddings, and debuts; (2) corporate events, namely, conferences, company anniversaries, awarding ceremonies, product launches, and EK Magicalympics team building; and (3) school events, such as commencement exercises, Junior-Senior prom, and sports events.
Enchanted Kingdom can cater to in-park group reservations from 10,000 to 25,000 guests in various themed environments in the Park’s seven zones or in its enchanting events venues: Eldar’s Theater (600-seater), Boardwalk Party Place (300-seater), and Enchanting Events Place (2,000-seater).
Enchanted Kingdom boasts of “themed entertainment” in each zone. It also has a variety of musical shows throughout the season using in-house and TV network partner talents. Entertainment and special events are usually held at any of the aforementioned venues.
Currently, Enchanted Kingdom is exploring ways to expand into other ventures like Edutainment. Through the spirit of participation in education-related undertakings, the theme park can greatly help in the future of the country’s educational backbone.
In 2015, the Philippine government submitted to the United Nations the country’s commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The country committed to reduce its carbon emissions by 70 percent by 2030. The carbon dioxide reductions will come from the sectors of energy, transport, waste, forestry and industry. Join us! Help us reverse the Earth’s “hothouse climate” tipping point.
