At SM City Lipa
It was a night of carols and warm, blissful spirits as SM City Lipa officially welcomed the Christmas season with the unveiling of the SM City Lipa Christmas Village, Nov. 6.
This was a simultaneous event which happened in all SM Supermalls nationwide. The pre-program featured young violinists and singers who serenaded the growing number of audience around five in the afternoon. Also present in the event is Provincial Tourism Officer Mr. Pancho Lardizabal, Lipa City Tourism Council Chairman Mr. Alex Maralit, and Lipa City Administrator Atty. Leo Latido.
The SM City Lipa family were all clad in red as they welcome the guests gathered at the Event Center. Ballerinas from the Lipa Ballet School and mascots of different mall tenants paraded around the mall area, signalling the countdown to the grand unveiling of the Christmas village.
SM City Lipa Assistant Mall Manager, Mr. John Mauhay read the welcome speech which was also read in all SM Supermalls. The ballerinas were the ones who unveiled the huge curtains concealing the Christmas village. Applauses and cheers dominated the Event Center when the audience saw the houses and Christmas trees, and Snowman and Santa Claus.
Then Volce Choir sang all-time favorite Christmas carols before Santa Claus gave gifts to the children in the audience. Two other choirs performed – The Mabini Academy Choir and Divino Amor Choir.
Starting today, November 6, SM City Lipa mallgoers can enjoy taking pictures of themselves in the Christmas Village. Christmas has started here, at SM City Batangas, and in all SM Supermalls around the country. Merry ChriSM everyone! Cheers! 🙂
