European-Themed Christmas Display Officially Starts the Season at City of Dreams Manila

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Another Christmas Tree lighting was held recently at the City of Dreams Manila is Pasay City. The annual activity is a much anticipated event since it formally starts the Christmas celebrations for the venue. The European-themed décor of its Christmas display at the main entrance greets the incoming visitors of the place - something that would bring smiles on their faces. There is also a A 22-foot teddy bear covered in LED lights at the garden area near the Nobu pool.

Many establishments usually officially hold Christmas activities immediately after the Halloween or All Saints day / All Souls Day season in the country, but the Christmas decors start as early as September, some do it even during the month of August.

The Manila Symphony Orchestra performed Christmas songs at City of Dreams Manila’s Christmas Display Ceremony, while Karylle Padilla -Yuzon serenaded the audience with holiday melodies.

Yuletide themed cookies were also being offered to guests during the Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Of course, complimentary drinks were also not far behind.

The event was graced by Ms. Earth Philippines 2017-Ms. Eco-Tourism Vanessa Mae Castillo and Ms. Earth Philippines 2017-Fire Nelza Bautista. They were joined by Parañaque City Mayor Edwin Olivarez, Mrs. Janet Olivares, and Parañaque First District Congressman Eric Olivarez.

Other special guests include Belle Corporation Vice Chair Willy Ocier.

City of Dreams Manila Property President Geoff Andres gave an opening message before the actual program started where a Yuletide fairy brought enchantment at the European-themed Christmas display and joined by the Southside ballerinas who performed a special dance number.

Chaos Entertainment Manager and coincidentally Ms. World Philippines 2017 finalist Cristina Coloma hosted the event.

We took videos of the ceremonies so please do watch them at our official YouTube channel.
