It was the fifth fabulous edition of the community’s favorite spring-themed celebration of anime, cosplay and art as fans once again came in droves to Ozine Sakura Festival at UP Town Center last April 14 and 15, 2024. With free entrance, everyone was welcome to attend and partake in the celebration filled with sakura-themed games, attractions and contests to their heart’s content.

Celebrating its fifth edition, the Ozine Sakura Festival organized by Ozine Events, has been a series of cosplay and anime events to celebrate the start of a brand new year in the community. With fresh and trendy UP Town Center as its latest venue, Ozine Sakura Festival was once again a massive hit with the public, catering to long-time dedicated fans of cosplay to new converts to the cosplay hobby, to the casual anime fan: there was a lot for anyone to enjoy at these events, with even entire families partaking in the fun and festive atmosphere.

The event got to feature sakura-themed games, attractions and contests to the delight of attendees, which included the Lucky Sakura Games and got to win some nice prizes and merch.

The photobooth got to make sure attendees got memorable photos with friends and loved ones from being at the event.

Ozine events prides itself in the sheer number and variety of booths and exhibitors where attendees got to browse and have their fill of all the merch they simply love and covet, like figures, toys, artwork, cosplay goods, accessories, clothing, and anything and everything in between. With booths and exhibitors all over the main activity area, con goers definitely had their fill of browsing and purchasing the many unique finds throughout the event.

The stage was alive at Ozine Sakura Festival with an exciting and engaging program led by host Shion, which included activities like stage games, Charity Auctions, Cosplay Parade and Cosplay Catwalk, Sakura Cosplay Competition, mini-game and more attractions that delighted attendees and mall patrons alike.

And of course, was there for our beloved community of cosplayers, who got to enjoy the event and the wonderful venue that UP Town Center had to offer. They had memorable photoshoots at the many stylish locations, had their photos taken by mallgoers and fellow cosplayers, and had fun in the company of people with the same fandoms, and we’d like to feature some of them here.
