“Ortigas & Company continues to make its malls the go-to destination for family and friends, and what better way to show this than through the return of the award-winning Christmas Street Light Musical Tunnel at Ortigas East. This much-awaited tradition, which began last year, was developed to provide Filipinos and even tourists more reasons to celebrate at Tiendesitas and make it a must-see holiday destination.” ~Mr. Renee C. Bacani, Ortigas Malls Vice President
Nothing can evoke the holiday feeling better than the strains of familiar Christmas songs amidst beautiful blinking lights, creating an exquisite wonderland to welcome the most awaited season. Ortigas & Company’s award-winning Christmas spectacle—the first of its kind in the Philippines—returns this year as the Christmas Street Light Musical Tunnel opened to the public last November 6, 2018.
The Christmas Tunnel marks its second run with new arrangements and a flashier show for more artistic and musical flair. With this show, families and friends who will troop to Ortigas East are sure to feel the joy of the Christmas season.
The Christmas Street Light Musical Tunnel, which bagged two Stevie Awards in the recent International Business Awards for Real Estate Marketing Campaign of the Year and Re-Branding/Brand Renovation of the Year, promises a one-of-a-kind experience with its structural features. Made with 2,368 pixels of light, each pixel is composed of three bulbs in red, blue, and green, flickering and dancing festively according to the music’s beat. When stretched out, the Christmas Tunnel is equivalent to 1.4 kilometers, or the length of 28 Olympic swimming pools.
This year, Ortigas East elevates Christmas celebrations yet again as it brings to life the Philippines’ only Christmas street light musical tunnel, continuing a tradition that it has set. The Christmas Tunnel will warm hearts and delight the senses with a captivating light display playing alongside some of the yuletide season’s well-loved hits.
As an added offering, famed shadow play group El Gamma Penumbra and Ben&Ben will perform during the launch. There is also a whole slew of holiday activities in the estate’s retail destination, Tiendesitas, which guests can enjoy.
There is a StrEAT Food Market until January 6 for foodies in the metro, while kids get the chance to take photos with Santa in the Meet & Greet sessions happening on all Saturdays of December at the Fashion and Furniture Village from 2 to 5 PM. Fireworks will light the Ortigas skyline also every Saturday at 7 PM. Churchgoers can also flock to the Simbang Gabi which will take place at the Food Village from December 15 to 23 at 6 PM.
Families and friends out to explore Tiendesitas also find new dining choices, such as the largest Rico’s Lechon branch in Metro Manila. Sports enthusiasts will also soon be in shopping heaven as Decathlon, the largest European sports brand, opens in Tiendesitas.
New shops are on top of the exciting redevelopment happening in Ortigas East, which will give rise to Metro Manila’s eco-estate filled with some of the choicest retail, residential, and lifestyle offerings.
