MANILA -- SM Mall of Asia held its Grand Festival of Lights on Saturday.

Children waited on the sidelines for the Christmas parade. Music played as floats with the theme Santa’s workshop passed by. Men and women dressed colorful costumes greeted children along the parade route.

The parade started at the North Arcade, passing the front of the giant mall before ending on Seaside Street.

The Grand Festival of Lights, which is now on its 10th year, is one of the most awaited mall traditions during the Christmas holidays.

It is held every Saturday at 5:30 p.m. and ends with a short fireworks display. People can view the parade until Christmas Day.
