Festival Of Lights: Ayala Triangle Gardens light show

Ayala Triangle Gardens’ light show is back, as radiant and festive as in the past years. The Festival of Lights is a free activity to include in your Christmas holiday, whether you’ll be spending it with your family, friends, or lover.

This Christmas season’s grand production called Christmas Night with Countless Lights is a visual and musical feast of dancing lights matched with lively and heartfelt music medleys. At the same time, there’s a food market where you can buy meals and snacks for a picnic.

Every hanging light moves along with the beat of three different music medleys.

This season’s Ayala Triangle Gardens’ light show attraction is called Kaleidoscope of Sight, Sound, and Light. It starts with a rendition of classic Pinoy Christmas songs, such as songs by Ryan Cayabyab. It is followed by Cosmic K-pop Christmas in which people can dance to trending K-pop music in the middle of Ayala Triangle Gardens, and it finishes with a Big Band Holiday medley of timeless Christmas songs, such as “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of The Year”.

You can feel the infectious joy in the air as you see kids and adults having fun and swaying to the music. Aside from the lights, they loved being enveloped by the air of the smoke.

There are food concessionaires a few feet away from the lights.

Restaurants have yet to open at this part of the park. For now, there is a food market where people can buy meals and snacks, such as burgers, sushi, donuts, coffee, and more.
