Christmas Attraction: Meralco opens Liwanag Park to the public


It's Christmas season once again and in each every places you can see different attractions prepared by local governments, business establishments and organizations. Each attractions offer a lot of themes about Christmas and I was very fortunate to visit some of it (and counting!).

Last time, Meralco finally opened its own Liwanag Park which features Christmas light displays and attractions that were made of scrap copper wire, a mini train ride for visitors, the Toy Town and a bazaar. The park is open until January 6, from 6-10 pm.

If you are traveling along Ortigas Avenue, you can see this park glowing and feel the spirit of Christmas.
I was surprised to find out that Meralco organized such kind of huge Christmas project through the partnership of Department of Tourism and several LGUs in decorating of a giant parol and 500 boxes of Christmas lights. This partnership aims to brighten the country during the Christmas season and to put it on the map as one of the world's best tourist destinations during the holidays. LGUS will get prizes frm Meralco for the best Liwanag Parks.


The Liwanag Park and the partnership with the DOT are just part of the larger Maliwanag ang Pasko program of Meralco, though. Under the program, Filipino households, too, are enjoined to do their part in lighting up their homes this season. In return, they get the chance to win prizes. To join, they may take a photo of their lighted homes or of any of the Liwanag Parks and upload them on the Meralco Facebook page. Every entry helps contribute to Meralco’s program of energizing public schools in Palawan, Bohol, Quezon and Dinagat Islands. By joining the program, customers, therefore, not only help brighten their communities, but they also get the opportunity to help uplift public schools in the country and provide a better future for underprivileged school children.
Started in 2006, the Maliwanag ang Pasko (MAP) seeks to encourage Meralco’s customers to light up and decorate their homes, establishments and cities to spread the beauty and joy of Christmas in their communities.

For more details on the Maliwanag ang Pasko program, contest mechanics and the list of Liwanag Parks, you may visit the Meralco Facebook page (facebook.com/meralco).
