Thousands of fans of Eat Bulaga’s segment “Kalyeserye,” featuring the love team of Alden Richards and Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza in real life), trooped to the Philippine Arena in Bulacan on Saturday morning to watch the noontime show.

As early as 6 a.m., organizers allowed the audience to enter the 55,000-seater arena, which is now recognized as the world’s largest mixed-use indoor theater.

Outside, fans could be seen showing off their tickets, which bore the face of Lola Nidora, one of comedian Wally Bayola’s characters in Kalyeserye.

Enterprising vendors also sold shirts, ID laces, paper dolls of Richards and Mendoza and even Eat Bulaga-themed meals. KS
