A CHRISTMAS SHOPPING EXTRAVAGANZA TO REMEMBER. Thousands of people flocked the Globe Circuit Events Grounds for the biggest Circuit Makati Bazaar last November 18.

CHRISTMAS IS SHINING BRIGHTER THAN EVER. The Circuit Makati Bazaar 2016 shined brighter with celebrity merchants (L-R) Mara Lopez, Maria Isabel Lopez, Gretchen Fullido, Nikki Valdez, Christine Bersola – Babao, and Marissa Sanchez.

A HOLLY JOLLY CHRISTMAS. Children enthusiastically flocked the Circuit Makati Bazaar 2016 for the chance to pose with Santa Claus. 




In partnership with Mastercard and Alveo, last November 18, this magnificent masterpiece made purely of 250,000 sparkling lights brought light to the biggest, hippest, Circuit Makati Bazaar 2016. Around the tree, 2,500 strands, each with 100 lights, plus 150 sets of meteor lights, create a magical spectacle that showcases the grandeur of Christmas.
From sun up to sun down, the thousands who flocked the 3-day bazaar, co-presented by Mastercard and HSBC,  for its six Christmas villages-- Star Avenue featuring gift finds from top local celebrities, Mommy’s Best by Project Mom (headed by Amanda Griffin and Bianca Araneta-Elizalde), Lil’ Preneur by HedCen, Millenial Spot (with merchants from Karl Edwards and Kaizen Events Inc.), Fit & Fab by Hunt and Gather, and Mercato Centrale, not only shopped  their heart’s delight, but also witnessed the breathtaking Christmas tree.
In addition, guests were serenaded with Christmas carols from The Voice Kids and the students of HedCen, coupled with dance and other acoustic performances. Exciting activities such as the photography workshop by Canon and Nikon, a Zumba party, and a raffle with prizes from Oppo, Power Mac Center Spotlight, SandBox Alviera, Nuvali CampN, and Mystery Manila delighted everyone who went to enjoy the Christmas rush. 
Giving a new dimension to Christmas trees, the giant Circuit Makati tree can be accessed from inside and out giving a more immersive experience for all. Come inside and marvel at the sight of countless moving lights, many of which have been recycled from the previous years with the aim of staying environmentally friendly.  To bring more life to the Christmas tree, it has been jazzed up with more color to evoke a youthful and vibrant vibe, and sprinkled it with circular patterns inspired the Globe Circuit logo. The result is simply spectacular.
“This year, we wanted to curate another magnificent display with a modern and interactive Christmas tree that’s sure to entice our visitors,” said Shiella Aguilar, in keeping with Ayala Land’s efforts to bring bright lights to various estates across the country, transforming its developments into a Christmas wonderland where people can come together and feel the magic of the season.  
The Circuit Makati Christmas tree will continue to bring joy until January 8, 2017.  Indeed, bright lights are bringing Christmas cheer to the ever-bustling city. As if this were not enough, Ayala Land has upped the ante as it lined up exciting fun-filled activities and great entertainment for every member of the family this season.
