Araneta City brings back the Christmas Animated Display (CAD)—a beloved tradition anchored around beautiful music, timeless stories, and plenty of youthful laughs—for its first Christmas as a city.

This year's Christmas Animated Display centers around the stories of five important figures of the Yuletide season: The Little Drummer Boy, Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus, and the Nativity.

With a beautiful backdrop and familiar characters that provide plenty of color, each scene in the animated display will bring plenty of smiles and laughs to its spectators.

The Christmas Animated Display has 15-minute shows from 6:00pm to 10:00pm on Sundays to Thursdays, and from 6:00pm to 11:00pm on Fridays to Saturdays, until January 5, 2020 at the Times Square Food Park. Admission is free to the public.

Aside from the Christmas Animated Display, the Times Square Food Park also houses various side activities to enjoy this Christmas season. There are fun rides and booths, as well as a synthetic skating rink for the kids and kids at heart. Of course, it would not be complete without a variety of dining options meant to satisfy one's cravings.

The festive launch comes just a week after Araneta City lit up its iconic giant Christmas tree. More than 25,000 people witnessed the star-studded event, which was headlined by Anne Curtis.
