City of Dreams Manila officially kicked-off Yuletide festivities with the lighting of a 32-foot Christmas tree as the main highlight of its European-themed décor replete with two towering 22-foot nutcrackers, life-size Santa’s log cabin and sleigh at the main entrance. Parañaque City Mayor Edwin Olivarez and his wife Janet, Parañaque First District Congressman Eric Olivarez, Belle Corporation Vice Chair Willy Ocier and City of Dreams Manila Property President Geoff Andres spearheaded the lighting ceremony and were joined by celebrity Karylle and Ms. Earth Philippines 2017’s: Ms. Eco-Tourism Vanessa Mae Castillo and Ms. Fire Nelza Bautista.
Karylle also serenaded guests with classic holiday songs” Carol of the Bells”, “Angels We Have Heard On High” and “All I Want For Christmas Is You”. Hosted by Chaos Night Club Entertainment Manager and coincidentally Ms. World Philippines 2017 finalist Cristina Coloma, the program also featured an eight-piece ensemble from the Manila Symphony Orchestra with DJ Mica Atkinson, and the Southside ballerinas.
In his welcome remarks, Andres attributed the property’s Christmas décor concept to the Danish designer Creation Group, which has designed amusement parks, malls, family entertainment spaces and hotels and restaurants, and Tema Design Philippines which executed the displays and various fiberglass installations.
During the holiday season, Santa will be present at the log cabin installed at the main entrance and distribute sweet treats to guests during weekends of December. Various choirs will perform holiday melodies also every weekend up to December 25 at The Shops on the upper ground against a cluster of golden Christmas trees with fairies in flight. For magical photo ops, a 22-foot teddy bear covered in LED lights will be a favored backdrop at the garden by Nobu Hotel, as it sets the holiday mood and illuminates the integrated resort’s outdoor and garden space.
DreamPlay will hold its annual Christmas-themed activity “Shrek the Halls” from December 2 to January 2, while a three-day bazaar for Dream Rewards members from November 24 to 26 will be held at the Grand Ballroom. Staycation packages at Crown Towers Manila, Nobu Hotel Manila and Hyatt are on offer until December 31. Holiday menus and promotions will be offered in Nobu Manila, Crystal Dragon, Red Ginger, Wave, Café Society, and The Café at the Hyatt and in the other dining establishments.
Chaos will fly in international DJ Ookay to perform on December 8, while New Year’s Eve countdown parties at Chaos and CenterPlay will highlight top local performing artists including True Faith on December 31.
