#InsideVibal: Candies, costumes, tricks, and treats at Vibal Halloween 2017

October 31st, 2017

What happens when fairies, princesses, pirates, and superheroes gather together in a special celebration? One fun halloween party!

On October 20, 2017, over 100 children visited the Vibal office at Araneta Center, Cubao for Vibal’s annual Halloween Party. All dressed up as pop culture icons and characters, the children went trick-or-treating, visiting the company’s different departments.

Aside from chocolates and candies, the children were treated to a storytelling session, puppet show, games, and awards for Best in Costume.

Children were all ears during the Si Pagong at Si Matsing puppet show.

Since last year, Halloween in Vibal has become a popular event, not just for children, but for the employees as well. With awards and cash prizes for Best in Costume and Best Halloween Decoration, staff from different departments take one day off to compete against one another in terms of creativity.

This year, literature was the chosen theme, prompting each department to decorate their respective areas to reflect a favored published work. Stations were transformed into different worlds and employees came as characters in Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, The Little Mermaid, Marvel Universe, Harry Potter Series, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
