A Dazzling Christmas Lights Iloilo Business Park

Megaworld’s 72-hectare township development ushers in the Yuletide seasons with its 40-foot Christmas Tree and giant lighted installations at the ‘Enchanted Forest of Lights’. The property giant officially kicked off the Christmas season with a display of lights and color as over 38 giant animal installations lit up along Megaworld Boulevard, Festive Walk Mall, Festive Walk Parade, and Plaza Delgado.

With a ‘nostalgic childhood Christmas’ becoming the theme of this year’s decorations, bright lights and lively performances took center stage at the Festive Walk Mall Outdoor Atrium, which culminated with the lighting of the 40-foot Christmas Tree. The ceremonies were led by Iloilo City Councilor Jay Treñas, Iloilo Business Park vice president for sales and marketing Jennifer Palmares-Fong, and Festive Walk Iloilo general manager Buford Tan. The same event also launched the ‘Enchanted Forest of Lights,’ a collection of giant lighted installations scattered in various parts of Iloilo Business Park.

The Enchanted Forest of Lights is composed of huge LED-lighted displays as high as 15 feet. These include replicas of squirrels, dogs, bears, and giraffes, as well as sea animals like goldfish, dolphins, octopus, and whales. A display of fantasy creatures, such as the unicorn, were also added.

“Christmas is all about savoring moments and creating new memories with your loved ones. With our dazzling displays, attractions and events, we invite everyone to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year here at Iloilo Business Park,” Palmares-Fong said.

Dyring the launch, local performers from Parkour Iloilo, Jumpstreet Gymnastics, and Claravall-Gonzales School of Classical Ballet regaled the audience with aerial tricks, acrobatics, and ballet performances. Moreover, around 40 kids from families belonging to the Ati Community of Lanit—an indigenous community based in Jaro, Iloilo—added flair to the celebration with their surprise performance. Concluding the Christmas kickoff celebrations was the Kinaadman Chorale, which serenaded the crowd with their own rendition of classic Yuletide carols.

During the event, Festive Walk Iloilo also unveiled a series of upcoming and exciting events and activities in store for mall goers this Holiday season. ‘The Mega Book Fair’ was launched earlier in the day and will run from November 8-11. Moreover, fashion finds will also be showcased at the Iloilo Designers Week from November 18-30. Christmas fairs featuring with interesting local products, great deals and promos, a meet and greet opportunity with Santa and more performances are also expected in the coming days.
