The “Christmas Spirit” takes over an entire stretch of Fronterra Drive in Tiendesitas, Ortigas East as Ortigas & Co. introduce to the public the very first Christmas Musical Street Light Tunnel in the Philippines.

In a grand “Switch-On” ceremony held in the afternoon of November 10 led by Ortigas & Co. Ltd. Partnership (OCLP) CEO Jaime Ysmael and Pasig City Mayor Bobby Eusebio, media and guests witnessed the grand spectacle of 2,368 pixels of LED lights with 13 mini search lights arranged like a luminous Christmas musical tunnel along Fronterra Drive.

Each pixel comes with three (3) bulbs in red, green, and blue which forms an infinite number of colors and patterns that seems to dance along with the tunes being played.

Holiday light tunnels are a big thing in different parts of the world, one of the most popular of which is the Kyoto Illumiere in Japan which people troop to in droves to watch. Also worth mentioning are the Lights at Lafarge in Vancouver, Canada where a Christmas light display circles the entire lake, and the Tunnel of Light at Norwich in the United Kingdom.

These famous light tunnels are the inspiration for Ortigas East’s Christmas Musical Street Light Tunnel, the very first in the Philippines.

“We at Ortigas & Company always strive to come up with unique and magical Christmas concepts. We want to light up the Christmas season,” says Arch. Renee Bacani, Ortigas & Company Vice President. “Christmas brings people together and the Christmas Musical Street Light Tunnel is one spectacle that aims to gather families and friends together to enjoy and be delighted by the many possibilities and cheer that the season can bring.”

Experience the grandeur of a Christmas Musical Street Light Tunnel outfitted with music and bursting with lighting elements to make it more appealing for people to walk or drive through the brightly-lit passage.

The Christmas Musical Street Light Tunnel is sure to make heads turn and keep eyes glued as families and friends bask under the glow of a shower of lights with songs filling the air to boot. It will be the ultimate Christmas experience for shoppers and diners to take a walk or drive through a dazzling tunnel of lights. The magic and grandness of it all will definitely stay with anyone who experiences it for a lifetime.
