Venice Grand Canal Mall Christmas 2

Venice Grand Canal at McKinley Hill, the country’s most romantic mall, launched their exciting “Grandeur of Christmas” celebration for the holiday season with the lighting of the floating 40-foot christmas tree at the famed canal. 

The festive extravaganza also promises a delightful array of activities that invokes the magic of the season, including the return of the Grand Christmas Parade, a spectacle inspired by Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York, after a three-year hiatus. 

“Through the years, Venice Grand Canal has been a favorite destination for the nearby communities to share the wonders of Christmas. With the return of our beloved Grand Christmas Parade and an array of enchanting holiday experiences, our aspiration is for everyone to come together with their loved ones and relish the events they’ve missed the most,” said Graham Coates, head of Megaworld Lifestyle Malls.

Everyone is invited to see the majestic 40-foot floating tree at the Venice Grand Canal, serving as the mall’s main attraction for the festive holiday season. The tree lighting ceremony last November 16 was attended by no less than the Hon. Mayor Lani Cayetano herself, who was joined by other local government officials and Megaworld Lifestyle Malls executives.
