If you think Christmas bazaars are all the same, then you’re definitely in for a merry surprise as Circuit Makati—the go-to event destination for everyone— holds the biggest and hippest outdoor bazaar on November 18-20, 2016.
Inspired by Christmas markets from around the globe, the Circuit Makati Christmas Bazaar will feature six Christmas villages bursting with over 500 merchants offering the best holiday finds–gift items, clothes, accessories, knick knacks, electronics, toys, and food.
Find yourself in a magical wonderland as we embark on a journey that will kick-start the upcoming holiday season at Circuit Makati as we light a one-of-a-kind, 56-foot tall Christmas tree on the first night of the bazaar. The interactive Christmas tree installation will entertain guests and give them magical dreams to remember.
As if this were not enough, Ayala Land has upped the ante by lining up exciting fun-filled activities and great entertainment for every member of the family.
Bask in the wonder the holidays are about to offer as you hear Christmas carols from The Voice Kids, the students of HedCen, coupled with dance and other acoustic performances.
Stuff your shopping bags with great surprises from each of these six Christmas villages.
If gliterrerati is your thing, there’s Star Avenue, where you will encounter celebrities such as Shaina Magdayao, Miriam Quiambao, Gretchen Fullido, Christine Babao, LJ Moreno Alapag, Nikki Valdez and Maria Isabel Lopez with her daughter, Mara Lopez who will be giving everyone a chance to own their products and pre-loved items.
In search of stocking stuffers for the little ones and mommies too? Check out Mommy’s Best by Project Mom, headed by Amanda Griffin and Bianca Araneta-Elizalde. This village is filled with amazing brands, products and services that cater to moms, kids, babies, homes, and families.
Don’t leave growing kids out of the holiday fun. They would definitely love Lil’ Preneur by HedCen, which will display a wide array of goodies for students from grade school to high school. To delight young audiences, there’s even a storytelling session, musical performances, and the grand spectacle of Christmas Around the World.
