The Native Color Carnival showed the fun-loving and free-spirited nature of the brand. The event featured street performers, games like balloon dart and ring toss, snow cone stands, and cotton candy booths, to name a few. "There's a Native for everyone and every kind of person; young, old, men, women or children can all enjoy Native just like how there's an attraction for everyone at the carnival. That's where the concept came from," said Philippine Brand Manager for Native Miguel Cervero.


Carnival-goers were also treated to a fashion show featuring Native’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection and Philippine brand ambassadors like Taekwondo champion Karl Delos Santos, Ateneo Blue Eagles Men’s Basketball Team captain Kirk Long, professional model Terrance Lloyd, and Philippine National Team swimmer Roxy Kee, to name a few.


Among those who joined the fun were Divine Lee with boyfriend Victor Basa, Sarah Meier-Albano with husband Banjo and daughter Kaya, Rovilson Fernandez, Tim Yap, event hosts Tracy Abad and Vince Golangco, Marvin Keifer, Paolo Paraiso, Dino Imperial, Brent Javier with girlfriend Karen Pamintuan, JR Isaac, Vince and Patricia Hizon with kids, and more. The night ended with DJ Trouble Andrew spinning his signature beats.
