Experience the magic of the well-loved Filipino Christmas tradition as Ayala Land brings back the Festival of Lights 2023 with a delightful twist. This year’s event promises not just a classic light show but also two brand new attractions, making it the most spectacular showcase yet. Let’s delve into the details and discover the wonders awaiting you at Ayala Triangle Gardens.
A Spectacular Evolution: From Light Show to Wonderland
The Festival of Lights, from its humble origins as a simple light show, has evolved into a breathtaking spectacle. Directed by the renowned Ohm David, the main attraction, “Kaleidoscope of Sight, Sound, and Light,” introduces innovative “mappable LED lights” and interactive floor projections.
These cutting-edge technologies transform the courtyard into a mesmerizing canvas of light and color, creating an enchanting experience for visitors of all ages.
Musical Medleys to Warm Your Heart
Immerse yourself in the first medley, “Paskong Pinoy,” a visual symphony narrating the story of “Simbang Gabi” through vibrant lights and beloved Filipino Christmas carols. The second medley, “Cosmic K-Pop Christmas,” transports you to a K-Pop concert amid the picturesque Ayala Triangle Gardens. The third medley, “Big Band Holiday,” invokes the glamour of a bygone era, combining Art Deco-inspired lights with iconic tunes. Each medley is a journey through time and music, promising a feast for the senses.
Beyond the Courtyard: A Trail of Light Adventures
Explore curated installations beyond the courtyard, adding an extra layer of magic to your Festival of Lights experience. These installations are strategically placed throughout the gardens, creating a fully immersive and enchanting journey through the art of light.
Brand New Attractions: Making Wishes and Shedding Light
“Wish Upon a Light” awaits you at the northern part of the gardens, introducing a wishing pond where your Christmas wishes can come to life. Share your dreams on an interactive screen, and watch as they light up a green wall for everyone to see.
In collaboration with Arte House, Leeroy New, and Illac Diaz, the Festival of Lights 2023 proudly presents “Liter of Light.” This art installation features “Elemento” by Leeroy New, shedding light on an inspiring tale of recycled plastic bottles, water, and bleach bringing illumination to classrooms without electricity. Witness this awe-inspiring installation, lit up by solar-powered, recycled water bottles, starting December 2.
