In a limited time colorful offer, SM North Edsa introduces ColorGram which will run from March 5 to 31, 2018 at The Block Atrium. SM North Edsa recognizes the millennial’s need for a colorful feed this summer therefore ColorGram was made a delightful IG-worthy spot composed of 3 ball pits, 4 mood rooms, and 4 colorful booths. In partnership with Davies, ColorGram sure looks like it could add a lot of color to your barkada’s summer and hopefully you’re barkada’s plans!
The ball pits have an entrance fee of P150 for 30 minutes but if you purchase P500 worth from SM Department Store, you get 50% off. The rest of the ColorGram is free for all. How’s that for a budget summer activity?
