Kiddie Magic

Fun Ranch, Alabang hosted the 1st kiddie version of Kadabra Cup last September 10, 2011.

Butterfly magic by Mika.

May the force be with you.

Ella, our baby.  She’s only seven years old.

He’s floating in the air.

Kids also enjoyed the live animal encounter provided by Zoomanity Group’s Residence Inn, Tagaytay.

Sponsors went full blast too in our Kids Division.  Lucky raffle winners received pairs of slippers, entrance tickets, overnight accommodation and umbrellas.

We had so much fun working with the kids.  Their parents deserved an A+ for training them well.  Family members went all out by coming to the event and cheer for their kin.

And the winners are…

Brix (1st place), ella (2nd place) and Kevin (3rd place).

Jestler and Brix, Kadabra Cup’s 2011 Champions.

It was truly an amazing night for all families who watched both shows.  Congratulations to all our winners!

A Magical Sunday

Kadabra Cup is a family dinner show and annual magic competition organized by Fun Ranch.  It is usually held during the National Heroes Day long weekend.   For this year, we decided to have two categories, Senior and Junior Divisions.  The former was held at Ortigas while the latter at our branch in Westgate, Alabang.

Guess what popped out of these cage and box?

Girls.:)

And snakes.

Plus ten for being nationalistic. Check out our Philippine flag on his magical box.

This is Gina, the only lady magician in the group.

“Leodini”, Ruther Urquia and Dennis Daco served as technical judges.  Mommy blogger Joy Mendiola and Isidro Laforteza of Zoomanity Group represented the muggles.  For non-Harry Potter fans, muggles are non-magical people like us.:)

Judging was tough.

Kadabra Cup is our favorite event.:)

Guess who received the loudest applause?

Golden Show’s Abraham Velasco .  He was the show’s intermission number yet the kids wanted to vote him “Crowd Favorite”.   We give him a perfect 10 for showmanship.

Kadabra Cup is a perfect bonding event for the entire family.

We raffled off prizes courtesy of our generous sponsors.  Star Cruises gave away a free Singapore Cruise for 4 to one lucky winner.  Havaianas provided free pairs of slippers.  Zoomanity Group, the company behind Zoobic Safari, Pet Me Home at Tiendesitas and a lot more,  gave away free tickets to their zoo and overnight accommodation gift certificates.

Cherifer Immunomax and Memorx made sure everyone went home with free samples of their vitamins and premium item.

The show ended a bit late because we chose not to cut off Golden Show’s performance.    And the winner is…

Jestler the Magician.  And this is his signature split.

It was truly his lucky night because he bagged all the special awards like “oldest magician” and “crowd favorite”.

Beverage partner Pepsi provided our major prizes together with other sponsors like Acacia Hotel and Astoria Plaza Hotel.

Kadabra Cup is a great way to discover new talent.  As early as now, we are already making plans for next year’s show that would include changes our fans will surely love.
