The Festival of Lights at Ayala Triangle Gardens is back after two years!
The gardens were lit up again on Nov. 10, filling Makati with dancing Christmas string lights, 360-degree projections, 3D animation, and jolly music to usher in the holidays.
This year's theme was "Christmas Lights Factory," with images of Santa's elves and reindeer sprawling across the garden. Director Ohm David said the festival would be "full of heart, soul, and family," showing that "Christmas is really for everyone."
Music was also in the air as the Manila Symphony Orchestra, Pembo Elementary School Children's Choir, Tris Suguitan, Jazz Nicolas, and Mikey Amistoso performed for the launch.
The Festival of Lights is a holiday tradition in Makati but the COVID-19 pandemic caused it to go virtual for the past two years. Now, it's back and is coming alive every day from 6 to 10 p.m. until Jan. 8, 2023.
