An Extra Bright Christmas at Circuit Makati Pop Up City Opening Night

Tallest Christmas tree and biggest, hippest bazaar ushered in the holiday season last November 1- to 19, 2017 at Circuit Makati. Christmas is just around the corner and it promises to be extra bright at Circuit Makati, home of the tallest Christmas tree and the most exciting bazaar in the city.

In partnership with Mastercard, Alveo, and Samsung Air Conditioner, Circuit Makati officially welcomes Christmas by lighting up the magnificent, fully immersive, 56-foot tall Christmas tree which towers majestically over the city’s most upbeat lifestyle and entertainment destination. 

Illuminating the skyline with a burst of bright color, the Christmas tree’s lighting also coincides with the opening of the biggest and hippest Christmas bazaar, Pop Up Town, which is taking place at two locations this year – Circuit Makati and Arca South.  Set to kick off on November 17 to 19 at Circuit Makati, and December 2 to 3 at Arca South in Taguig, the bazaar is on its fourth year at Circuit Makati and promises to get everyone into the holiday vibe.

Adorned with over 250,000 sparkling lights that form intricate patterns of native Filipino weaves such as the Inabel and Burdado of Luzon, Banig Tikogo of Visayas and  T’Boli, Ukol and Yakan of Mindanao, the Circuit Makati tree is an extension of the Christmas wonderland now found at the Makati thoroughfares Ayala Avenue, Paseo de Roxas, and Makati Avenue.
