November 21, 2018

The holiday season is finally upon us. Vibrant Christmas lights, decors, and installations are slowly adorning the streets as holiday festivities kick off.

Dwellers of the Metro South can now feel the holiday cheer not too far away from home when Filinvest City holds its annual Christmas tradition beginning Friday, November 16.

For this year, the Metro South's premiere lifestyle destination features a bigger and better lineup of entertainment acts and extraordinary activities for the seasonal fest.

Dubbed as "Christmas comes alive", the celebration aims to cater to families and barkadas in search of best spots to chill and hang out for the holidays.

Guests can come together at the Spectrum Linear Park, the epicenter of this year's Christmas festivities.

Families and children, in particular, can take delight as the park comes to life with life-sized outdoor installations. These installations create a familiar and inviting image of Christmas by bringing back childhood memories as they stroll along the park. The whole display features four themed sections: a vibrant 40-foot Christmas tree; a "Once Upon A Christmas Dream" holiday display, an "Aboard the Christmas Train" ride for children and youngsters-at-heart; and a hot-air balloon centerpiece "Up, Up, and Away."

"Year after year, we aim to bring the Filinvest City community closer together through fun, engaging events. This year is no different as we make our City even more festive and enjoyable with Christmas Comes Alive," said Filinvest Head of Townships Don Ubaldo.

"Families and friends will surely enjoy the exciting activities that we have slated in the coming weeks as part of our continuing effort to give back to this community."
