5th Philippine International Motor Show Promises to be Fun for Whole Family
More than being a haven for car lovers and motoring enthusiasts, the 5th Philippine International Motor Show (PIMS) boasts of various activities to keep the family, especially the little ones, entertained with one-a-kind motoring experience.
Games, treasure hunts and pedal go-karts are sure to excite both the young and young-at-heart. Organized by the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines (CAMPI), the 5th PIMS will be held on September 18-21 at the World Trade Center, Pasay City, and is set to become the ultimate bonding destination for families and friends.
Here is a list of activities that PIMS attendees should be excited about:
Pedal Go-Karts and other Motoring-Inspired Games. This year’s PIMS promises to be the most engaging and experiential yet. With booths for kiddie “Pedal Go-Kart”, Pit-Stop Challenge, Fan-Belt Toss and other motoring-inspired activities, guests are sure to get a dose of adrenaline and endless fun.
Scale-Model Displays. Local die-cast and scale-model clubs have taken the challenge of creating a miniature motor show featuring the same car brands at this year’s most anticipated motor show.
Photo Exhibit of Automotive Designers. The Automotive Designers’ Row is a PIMS staple that aims to educate visitors about the brilliant minds behind some of the automotive industry’s best designs and game-changing innovations.
Treasure Hunt for Kids. Kids from six to 12 years old can learn more about cars in the most exciting way possible with an automotive-themed Treasure Hunt and Trivia Game.
Meanwhile, adults are also sure to get their fill of excitement with these event highlights:
