A Christmas candy land at the heart of the metro

Last October 27, 2023, Greenfield District transformed into a Christmas Candy Land with the launch of GDC’s annual holiday festivities called “A Christmas for Generations”. 

“Christmas is a special occasion for many Filipino families, and we want Greenfield District to be a part of their memorable holiday experience every year,” says GDC Executive Vice President and General Manager Atty. Duane A.X. Santos. “At GDC, we uphold our tradition of organizing events that promote the value of togetherness and spending quality time with the family, while ensuring everyone is safe and secure in our green open spaces.” 

The 60-foot Christmas tree at Greenfield District Central Park, decked with ornaments in the shape of sweet treats and delectable desserts, lit up the park as visitors enjoyed a night of holiday dining, shopping, and music.

To kickstart Greenfield District’s yuletide merry-making, visitors witnessed the traditional lighting of the 60-foot Christmas tree at the Greenfield District Central Park on October 27, 2023, at 7:00 PM. Key officers from GDC led the Christmas tree lighting ceremony, together with Santa Claus.

Brightly lit candy canes, donuts, lollipops, and other colorful dessert-themed ornaments lined this towering Christmas tree. Sparkling and vibrant lanterns in the shape of sweet treats and delectable desserts also lined the streets near Greenfield District Central Park, particularly Mayflower and United Streets.

The Christmas tree lighting ceremony was accompanied by a mesmerizing display of fireworks and an enchanting Christmas caroling from the internationally renowned community chorale Los Cantantes de Manila (LCDM), which set the tone for visitors to get into the holiday spirit. 

Visitors also got the opportunity to meet and greet Santa Claus and enjoy some delectable treats with their loved ones under the glow of Christmas lights, all while being serenaded by LCDM and rock n’ roll cover band, the Rockitwell Band. To top it all off, 30 lucky visitors also took home amazing prizes courtesy of GDC during the night’s raffle.

True to the theme of Christmas Candy Land, there is a wide variety of merchants selling desserts and sweet drinks, among other artisanal food and drinks on offer that will satisfy your holiday cravings. You can finish off your holiday gift shopping here as well, with booths showcasing diverse Christmas gift ideas—from unique stationery finds, trendy fashion pieces and accessories, and affordable home items, among other gift ideas on sale.

Greenfield District is excited to host this gathering, not just for communities within Ortigas Center and Mandaluyong City, but for families from all over who want to experience the magic of Christmas. 

From October 27 through December 31, everyone is invited to visit Greenfield District to marvel at the brightly-lit Christmas tree while enjoying some much-needed holiday dining and shopping with their loved ones. This is free and open to the public.

A Christmas tradition for generations

True to its mission of building for generations, GDC is also committed to building traditions for generations.

“At GDC, we are committed to not only building properties for generations but also developing verdant, spacious neighborhoods with lasting traditions, where Filipino families can create beautiful memories together throughout the years,” added Atty. Duane A.X. Santos.

“Christmas for Generations”, an annual holiday tradition at Greenfield District since 2014, is a testament to this mission.
