Last Friday (December 06, 2013) we went to the opening of the Christmas lights and Interactive fountain at Plaza Mayor, Balanga City.
It was jam-packed. The roads going to the Plaza were closed (much to my amazement ‘cause I walked in the center of the road without dying) and people are swarming from all parts. When we got there, it looked like half of the population of Bataan came to see the event. I was told after the show that it was also the concert of the Balanga UTown cast to raise money for Yolanda victims.
The event started at around 6:30 PM with the Dragon Dance. Then they had the cast of UTown sing some Christmas (feels) songs and they showed Letran’s Christmas MV. After a few moments they powered up the interactive fountain. Everyone was enthralled! I was amazed too. I love the colors (though I could teach that fountain a few more steps. Jeez). Three more songs later, they finally lit up the Plaza with Christmas Lights shaped into swirly things that they put on the walls of buildings. We even had a mini New-Year’s-Eve moment by counting from 10 to 1 before they turned on the lights.
Oh, and Manny Villar was there to also, introduce the City Library. I went to the Library yesterday (December 10, 2013) and was planning to live there. Seriously. I could read and read and not notice the world turning its back on me. Okay, back to the Library. It was super quiet (just how I like it), cozy, full of fictional books (drools) and textbooks too, have a function hall and a room for kids to play and read, laptops for computer-related researches, and was totally comfortable. I even sat on the floor ‘cause I can’t wait to read everything!
Wouldn’t you want to visit Balanga City now?
Shameless plug. Heehee.
