Nickelodeon announced the launch of the first Nickelodeon Slime Cup in the Philippines, bringing their unique brand of funny for kids and their families through playtime that promotes a healthy lifestyle at the slimiest sports festival over the summer vacation. Targeted at kids aged six years old and above and their families, the event is scheduled on May 31 at Hall 4 of the SMX Convention Center in Manila, from 10AM to 6PM.
First launched in Singapore last year, the celebration of athleticism, gaming and Nickelodeon’s signature green slime encourages kids to enjoy bonding with their families while instilling the values of teamwork, sportsmanship, discipline and determination. More than just an outlet for friendly competition among young boys and girls, the event aims to bring Nickelodeon’s brand of funny to kids while promoting playtime as a way to help them lead more active lifestyles.
The slime being a main ingredient to a number of the fun, sports-oriented activities, Nickelodeon Slime Cup invites kids and their families to play Nickelodeon character-themed games of golf, soccer, baseball, and more.
A major highlight to look forward to is the Streetball Challenge, a basketball competition open to the first 16 teams to register. Joining in on the slimetastic action are basketball superstars, who will mentor the final four teams. Watch out for who they are as the event date draws closer.
Awesome prizes, adrenaline-pumping games, thrilling performances and much-awaited special appearances from beloved Nickelodeon characters like SpongeBob SquarePants and friends, Dora the Explorer and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles complete the round-up of activities.
Open to all and free of charge, participants must simply head to the venue and register on the day of the event itself to take part in the festivities.
So get up and head to the biggest and slimiest sports festival for kids and sign up for the Nickelodeon Slime Cup!
