Tuesday, December 3, 2013
CAMELLA will light up its communities in Davao City on December 7 to usher in the Christmas season, with Northpoint leading the lighting ceremonies at its grand entrance.
"The decors and lighting have become an annual tradition for Camella, designed also to provide the public another destination to enjoy the season's ambiance," said Fritzie Joy Gepolio of Camella's marketing unit.
For the past three years, Camella's communities were among those with the best Christmas decorations in the city, visited by countless people who came with their friends and loved ones to admire the decors and have their photos taken there.
This year, the decors will be grander than usual, and there will be more activities lined up starting with a motorcade on December 6, followed by the opening of the Christmas Bazaar at 11 a.m. A live band will entertain shoppers of the bazaar that will be open until December 7.
Festivities will continue on Saturday with a flash mob "Dance Revolution," free face painting, and a Santa's House where young ones and the young at heart can have a "meet and greet" with Santa Claus.
At 4 p.m., children will be singing Christmas carols door-to-door at Northpoint, then invite unit owners to come down to join the countdown towards the lighting ceremony.
All these activities will lead towards the lighting ceremony that will be open to the public at six in the evening this Saturday, to be hosted by the Mutya ng Dabaw 2013, Guia Hidalgo.
"The public is welcome to witness our lighting and take pictures of our décor that will look like a Christmas Village," added Gepolio. Special performances from Makabayan Dancers and Star Power will also regale guests and visitors, and participants to the choir competition will be introduced.
Those who wish to join the choir competition and the Christmas Bazaar can call Camella office, Delgar Bldg., JP Laurel Avenue, Bajada, Davao City, telephone number (082) 295-3973.
"It will be a fun and eventful day at Northpoint on December 7, with games and prizes for guests and visitors, and special packages for homebuyers," said Gepolio.
She added that they will be giving away Christmas treats for their homebuyers this Saturday, such as big discounts, appliance showcase, and other freebies.
