The stars have arrived!

Asia’s oldest play-for-pay league landed in Calasiao, Pangasinan on Thursday afternoon for the 2019 All-Star Weekend festivities.

The PBA delegation, led by commissioner Willie Marcial, headed to Calasiao Municipal Hall first for a courtesy call with mayor Joseph Bauzon, a nephew of one of the PBA’s pioneers Orly Bauzon.

The PBA All-Stars participants then headed to Robinson’s Place Pangasinan and CSI Mall for a promotional tour of the All-Star Weekend. The fans got themselves a treat with the meet-and-greet session.

The festivities will kick off on Friday, with the Obstacle Challenge, Three-Point Shootout, Slam Dunk Contest, and the Rookie-Sophomores versus Juniors match.

The annual showpiece will then culminate on Sunday, where the highly-anticipated main event that will see the North All-Stars go head-to-head with the South All-Stars will take place.

The 30th PBA All-Star Weekend will be held at the Calasiao Sports Complex.
