Davao Lights Up for Christmas (2013)

Photojournalist Jojie Alcantara goes around town one night to document gaily colored holiday bright lights festooned in the streets, illuminating Davao at its finest.  Though most renowned for its “Silent Night” sans the noisy fireworks during this merry season, this big old city comes to life in a different way and lights up for the Christmas season once more in 2013.
