A giant Christmas tree lit up the sky on Friday night at the Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City, less than two months before Christmas Day.
The 100-foot Christmas Tree, with a large star on top, sparkled with blue and gold lights during its lightning ceremony at around 6 p.m.
Fireworks illuminated the sky while a shower of confetti filled the air as hundreds of spectators witnessed the lightning ceremony.
Binibining Pilipinas queens and Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. chair Stella Marquez-Araneta and celebrities like Vice Ganda, Alex Gonzaga and Iñigo Pascual graced the event.
Dazzling performances from celebrities also gave life to the night as a gift-giving ceremony was also held for the street kid beneficiaries of He Cares Mission.
