On November 9, Araneta Center will once again team up with Coca-Cola in a tree lighting ceremony that continues the legacy of spreading holiday cheer to Filipinos through simple acts of happiness. Hosted by Megan Young and Robi Domingo, the Yuletide activities will involve a constellation of television and movie celebrities from different networks, Coca-Cola’s Happiness Ambassadors, and Binibining Pilipinas beauty queens. Among the stars that are expected to grace the festivities are Enrique Gil, Jessy Mendiola, PBB Myrtle Sarossa and Yves Flores, Alden Richards, Louise Delos Reyes, Thea Tolentino, Jeric Gonzales, and X-Factor Grand Winner KZ Tandingan.
The tree lighting ceremony kicks off a string of festivities at the Araneta Center:
A British musical invasion of sorts comes to the Big Dome with back-to-back performances of musical icons Elton John (December 8) and Sting (December 9).
From Christmas Day until January 3 of the New Year, Disney on Ice presents Princesses and Heroes in yet another memorable ice spectacle.
The tree lighting likewise ushers in more holiday fanfare including the season’s bargains offered by Gateway Mall, Ali Mall, the New Farmers Plaza, and Farmers Market.
The Parolan display lights up on November 16 near the Farmers Garden. Fireworks will sparkle in the Christmas sky every Friday and Saturday from November 30 to January 3. There will also be chorale competitions and a magnificent showcase of floats depicting creatures from the sea at the Giant Christmas Tree parking lot.
Yes, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Araneta Center! Don't miss the tree lighting event at 3p.m. on Friday, November 9, at Quadrant C outside the Red Gate of the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
