“This is our fourth October Fiesta production. The last two we actually spent at home, and this is the first time we’re going back to the property to celebrate. So we’re excited to be back here,” said Joee Guilas, director of corporate communications for Newport World Resorts, during the press briefing. .
“Our October Fiesta celebration is deeply rooted in our company’s mission to create world-class experiences with a Filipino flair. And since our mission is actually to mobilize and transform the global party into the Philippines, we thought of introducing the word fiesta, because of course fiesta is inherited from the Filipino culture,” he added.
Guilas said there are three pillars to the fiesta celebration — “a lot of drinking, a lot of eating and a lot of rejoicing.”
