The Christmas spirit is indeed in the air!
Families looking for somewhere new to visit this festive holiday season may want to head to a newly opened Christmas village in San Fernando, Pampanga.
The Orchid Gardens Resort Complex recently opened their “Nights of Lights” Christmas village to the public for the second year to usher in the most wonderful time of the year.
"Nights of Lights: The Sound of Colors" attraction gives families a festive place to take selfies with glistening Christmas lights, snowy bubbles, and Santa Claus with his elves while night-strolling. Visitors can enjoy musical performances, interact with various cartoon characters, and enjoy a lively symphony of lights.
Expect to see park staff dressed up as your favorite Disney Princesses like Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Belle and Snow White. On weekends, you might also spot Elsa and Anna from Frozen, along with mascots of kiddie favorites including Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Hello Kitty, Peppa Pig and more. You can also nab photo ops with Santa Claus, Santa Girls, Santa’s Elves, stilt walkers and jugglers.
Christmas is not complete without the whole family, so you can take your furbabies along on your holiday trip. Pets that are fully vaccinated and wearing diapers are allowed in certain areas of the complex.
Take note that parking spaces inside the complex are limited, so a “first come, first served policy” is observed. Those who don’t have personal transport can reach The Orchid Gardens via SM Pampanga’s jeepney terminal, by riding a “Guagua-Palawe” jeepney.
The Nights of Lights is located at The Orchid Garden Resort Complex, Lazatin Blvd, San Juan City in Pampanga. The Christmas village will be open from 5:00 pm to 12:00 am (Monday to Sunday). Entrance fee is set at P50 per head, while children aged 1 year old and below can enter free of charge. All guests are required to wear their face masks except while actively eating or drinking.
