Summer isn’t my favorite season but when my favorite channel growing up holds a summer-themed party in an airconditioned mall, I knew I had to go. That’s how I found myself in TriNoma on Mother’s Day, watching episodes of Adventure Time and kids playing games themed to The Powerpuff Girls, Ben 10, OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes, and We Bare Bears.
Cartoon Network held Summer Splash, a tropical island-themed event in the city. Kids (and the kids-at-heart like myself) enjoyed games like finding their favorite Cartoon Network characters inside a larger-than-life dome, flying like The Powerpuff Girls at the Summersonic Flight trampoline, riding a Jake Banana Boat Simulator as Finn from Adventure Time, rescuing the three bear brothers from We Bare Bears on an inflatable raft, and conquering obstacles at the OK K.O.! Let’s be Heroes coast course.
And because it was Mother’s Day, Cartoon Network paid tribute through the Moms’ Glamcamp, where they received makeovers while their kids played around.
Kids took home freebies from sponsors, like sweets, toys, and sunglasses. Lucky kids got to win limited-edition Cartoon Network merchandise and other novelty items in the raffle.
I may have been in the city during the summer but I didn’t mind because I got to spend it with Cartoon Network!
