Ayala Triangle Garden Presents the Festival of Lights


If you take a walk down in Makati City’s Ayala Avenue at night, the lights you will see are more than Christmas decorations. The whole display tells a story through one million LED lights, music, special effects and artworks on the street and more centred on the historical Ayala Triangle Garden. Makati is known as one of the first and major business districts in the Philippines and the location of the Makati Stock Exchange Building.


It is during Christmas when this glamorous city makes its mark as a venue for art, technology, music and a home of many talents. It also provides a good party place to celebrate this joyous season despite the stressful life in the city. Here’s what Ayala Land and the City of Makati have to offer for the holiday season. This is your guide for the whole Christmas season for a list of events, food fairs and happenings here in Makati City.  #MakeItMakati





Ayala Triangle Gardens in Makati City turned into a magical urban park in the middle of Metro Manila’s busiest business district on Friday night, November 9. It’s the much-awaited opening of Ayala Land’s Festival of Lights, which boasts a larger-than-life Mickey-shaped structure at the center of the courtyard. It also features a lights-and-sounds show where colorful bursts of laser lights are played in sync with well-loved Disney soundtracks. Reimagine the Magic: A Festival of Lights runs every 30 minutes from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. until January 8, 2019.


As darkness falls, blazing lights will transform the Ayala Triangle Gardens into a magical paradise as more than a million twinkling lights start to play with the sounds. As the sounds of Christmas favourites fill the air, the string lights on trees and field lights on the ground start dancing. For several minutes these lights will flash and change colours to the beat of the music, bringing the unmistakable Christmas spirit alive.


Bask in electric beats that depict the holiday spirit through 3 distinct medleys. The Christmas fiesta will showcase a collection of music that will encapsulate the well-celebrated Filipino tradition with fun, bright and very rapid movements inspired by Rio de Janeiro.


The second medley will take the audience to a whole new world of classic and epic views with scores inspired by magical, heroic and period films. Coupled with a vast array of sparkling colours depicting the traditional Christmas spirit, memorable feelings of joy and passion fill the hearts of revellers.


And to conclude the show, the 20,000 square meter garden will come ablaze with colour as more than one million light bulbs dance to sweet and magical beats inspired by the much-loved Disney repertoire, transforming the landscape into a wonderful Christmas dream.


“This year, we’ve prepared another magnificent show that will definitely spark everyone’s merry hearts, bringing families, friends and the whole community together and remind them of the joys of Christmas,” said Shiella Aguilar, Project Development Manager for Makati.



For the past six years, Makati has captivated people with its spectacular lights and sounds show, the only one of its kind in the Philippines. The Festival of Lights has made it to the coveted list of Conde Nast Traveller’s Seven Most Spectacular Lights in the World, in the company of distinguished luminaries such as the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark, the holiday lights display at the legendary Champs-Elysees in Paris and Japan’s Kobe Luminarie.


Beyond the Ayala Triangle Gardens, major Makati thoroughfares Ayala Avenue, Paseo de Roxas, and Makati Avenue are festooned with beautiful street lights, stained glass wrapped around palm trees, and kinetic windmills. Across the metropolis, concrete islands have been transformed into Christmas landmarks featuring holiday themes closest to people’s hearts – the Holy Family, the Three Kings, angels, Christmas parols (a.k.a. Christmas star lanterns) and gifts.


In case you’re a bit far from Makati, you can marvel at the same set-up in five other Ayala Land estates all over the Philippines, including Ayala Malls Centrio, Cagayan de Oro (November 9); Ayala Center Cebu (November 10); Bonifacio High Street, Bonifacio Global City (November 15), Nuvali, Sta. Rosa, Laguna (November 24), and Vertis North, Quezon City (November 29).
