SM LANANG Premier took Dabawenyos on a whirl of wonder as it lit up its grand Christmas tree for the holiday season at 6 p.m. last November 8.
The magical celebration featured musical and dancing performances, and glittering installations that transformed the mall atrium into a delightful wonderland.
The main attraction, the Grand Christmas Tree, stands at 58 feet and is adorned with over 2,000 iridescent white and red balls and layered with hundreds of sets of Christmas lights.
Large reindeer and moving animals bring life to the winter-themed set that makes a perfect background for any holiday photo. Share photos and memories using the hashtags #WhirlOfWonderAtSMLanang and #SMagicalChristmas.
During the celebration, guests were entertained by performances by dancers from the Halili Cruz School of Ballet, ballerinas from the Royeca School of Ballet. The UIC String Orchestra filled the air with holiday tunes and set the jovial mood.
On the center stage spotlight were TV host and freelance model Carole Monique “Blinky” De Leon and SM Little Stars 2017 Grand Winner Gaea Mischa Salipot. Their antics made families and friends smile, laugh, and spread good cheers.
This celebration officially signaled the start of the holidays in SM Supermalls in Mindanao. Other SM malls in Davao, General Santos, and Cagayan de Oro are set to light up for Christmas later this November.
More magical things await mallgoers in SM Lanang Premier. Apart from great holiday shopping finds, an immersive display of holiday lights—The Tunnel of Lights—is mounted at the Northwing Event Grounds. Catch this installation from November 8 to December 31.
Shoppers can also share a bear this Christmas. For only P200 they can take home a bear and give one to a child in need. Visit the SM Bears of Joy booth at 2nd Level Mezzanine fronting Starbucks from November 8 to December 31.
