Araneta City streams traditional giant Christmas tree lighting
The Holiday season just got brighter as Araneta City and some of your favorite stars joined together – virtually this time around – to light up the iconic Giant Christmas Tree at the City of Firsts, yesterday, November 14th, 2020.
This much-anticipated Christmas tradition, now on its 39th year, brings Holiday cheer far and wide with Araneta City’s holiday theme “Comfort and Joys at the City of Firsts.”
“We understand how the pandemic has affected everything, including the way we’ll welcome and celebrate Christmas. We want to offer a holiday comfort to the public in the safety of either our stores or their homes. And through this virtual Christmas tree lighting, we are looking forward to giving joy and hope this season,” according to Marjorie Go, AVP for Marketing of Araneta City.
The event was streamed through YouTube and Facebook at 5pm yesterday and the pre-event program was virtually hosted by singer Anna Ramsey and TV host Robi Domingo also virtually hosted the main program.
Also at the event were Tawag ng Tanghalan champion Janine Berdin, The Voice Teens alum Jeremy Glinoga, and box-office star Vice Ganda who all virtually performed and took part in the tree lighting ceremony. Araneta City partnered with Coke Studios in bringing indie band December Avenue to set the Christmas mood in the virtual event.
Netizens who tune in to the entire program had a chance to win an entertainment showcase, Noche Buena packages, and many other exciting prizes.
“Though the tree lighting event is going digital this year as a safety precaution, the public is still free to visit the giant Christmas Tree at the Times Square Food Park along General Roxas Avenue anytime this season for holiday snaps and selfies,” Go said.
