How do you celebrate 60 years of being on air?
For ABS-CBN, which brought television to the Philippines, the answer is two days of festivities with the Kapamilyas -- the audience, the people who patronized the broadcast company and brought it to where it is now.
On the first Saturday of October, people came in droves and they were met by the past and current stars and news personalities of the station.
There were old shows and there were new shows just as there were the young and old in the crowd. And there was the Kapamilya Village where the people can enjoy free food and free services, like medical and eye check-ups, while they mingle with the personalities they normally only get to see on TV.
There were also parlor games and book readings, but what people enjoyed the most was the feeling that they were and still are part of this 60-year-old family.
