A slight drizzle didn’t faze my family when we brought my 2-year old daughter Kameron and niece Princess, their first time at night, in the People’s Park to witness the spectacular display of colors and decorations that indicate Christmas is in the air.

A huge Christmas tree looms at the entrance with Santa waving at you, while a tall shelter for the Belen (tableau of the Nativity) made from local materials are set up in another area. Out there by the bridge, a new set of fountains draw people like a magnet, making every child’s eyes rounder in awe at the rush of water and play of colored lights, in time to the music being blared over the sound system.

People’s Park is a wonderful place to bring your kids and family over for a stroll where daily entertainment programs are now set for the holiday season. Outside the park are display stalls which sell assorted items and food for the Christmas bazaar.

Enjoy the Christmas photos.
