This year is no exception. After nearly four decades, Christmas traditions at Araneta City prove to be unwavering with the lighting of their traditional Christmas Tree at Times Square Food Park. Now symbolic more than ever, the Giant Christmas Tree bears the word 'HOPE' to make everyone look forward to better days ahead.
"We understand how the pandemic has affected everything, including the way we will welcome and celebrate Christmas," Araneta City said in a statement.
The public has been patronizing Araneta City's iconic Christmas Tree for 39 years. Its lights display at night is another treat for the public, who can visit the attraction with health protocols in place.
Well-loved Christmas food stalls, another long-time tradition, also continue to offer holiday treats, tasty nibbles, and delicious meals at the Times Square Food Park.
Safety protocols are strictly enforced. For customers, this is a welcome development, as open spaces are said to be safer dining venues in these times.
Times Square Food Park at Araneta City is open daily from 3:00 pm to 11:00 pm.
