The usual bright lights and noise of establishments in Frontera Verde were replaced by well-loved Christmas tunes and a lights display as Ortigas East launched its annual Christmas Street Musical Tunnel on Monday, ushering in the holiday season.

Now on its third year, the light display continues its tradition of lighting up the stretch of Frontera Verde with red, blue, and green lights that flicker to the beat of the music. 

This year, Ortigas East also included a separate lights show inside Tiendesitas called “Gift of Wonders.” Shaped like a giant gift box, mall-goers can go inside to look and take photos of a room full of twinkling lights.

Both installations will run every night starting at 6pm and ending at 10pm, from November 5 to January 5, 2020.
