This is the 9th Candy Fair and we just want to look back on the 8 wonderful years we've been spending together at this most awaited event of the year. Can you believe it's been that long?

  1. The first is always special. Back in 2006, we did it old school style at the Fort Open Grounds with different booths and tons of bands performing onstage. Were you there?

  2. Your favorite magazine comes to life. In 2007, we meant it quite literally and made our cover come to life by setting up a fun photo booth with the September issue blurbs hanging around. This was one of our fave setups ever! Did you get to take a cover photo then?

  3. Marriage booths are more fun at the Candy Fair. In 2008, we had 2 Candy weddings at the fair! Sam Concepcion and Kian Kazemi were the very lucky grooms to get hitched. Who would you like to get married to this year? ;)

  4. We know you would brave anything for us. 5 years ago, the unfortunate tragedy of Ondoy happened and we thought we wouldn't be able to celebrate our 10th anniversary with all of you. But some of you still braved the bad weather—and we got to have an intimate party with just a couple of our favorite cuties, Dino Imperial and the late AJ Perez (we miss both of you!).

  5. Your favorite celebrities always try to make it the best experience for you. In 2010, the Gigger boys made up for not being at the previous fair and performed for all you Candy Girls.

  6. Two is better than one. Remember when we made Elmo Magalona and Sam Concepcion cover guys for the September Candy Cuties mini mag? We could feel your joy from all the screams that came from the audience when they performed together at the fair!

  7. Celebrations are better together. We partied for Candy Cuties mini mag cover guy Ivan Dorschner's birthday and some of your favorite Cuties, Rammy Bitong, LA Aguinaldo, Javy Gil, Nzo Sarmiento, and Alex Diaz (formerly known as James McDermott)—collectively known as the Candy Armada—put on a fantastic show onstage for you!

  8. We know how to put up an entertaining show. From the fun games, to the interesting booths (and the super cute guys manning them *wink*), there's something for every Candy Girl at the fair. The program is always filled with great performances from your favorite celebrities. Which one was your absolute favorite? Play the video below to reminisce!

Are you ready to make new #CandyFair2014 memories with us? See you all at the Metrowalk Tent this Saturday! We can't wait to have tons of fun with you all day. Tickets will be available at the venue in case you still haven't gotten yours yet.
