EdSa, Lazatin, Grace Robinsons Christmas Tree Light Up [ Tuesday, 13th of November 2018 | 3 months ago ]
Mayor Edwin “EdSa” Santiago and Vice Mayor Jimmy Lazatin joined Robinsons Starmills Pampanga in its Christmas Tree Lighting Event, held on November 10, 2018.
The said mall highlighted the lighting up of its twenty-five (25) feet ‘Gingerbread Tree,’ which signified its welcoming of the forthcoming yuletide season.
Santiago, during his speech, shared that Christmas trees have become the trademark of Robinsons in celebrating the Christmas season.
“Naging tradisyon na ng Robinsons ang pagsisindi ng gahiganteng Christmas tree tuwing sasapit ang kapaskuhan. Binabati natin sila dahil isa itong paraan para magpasaya ng mga tao at pamilya na bumibisita sa mall at at madama nila ang diwa ng pasko,” said Santiago.
He also extended his gratitude to the mall, citing, “We should be thanking Robinsons for bringing Christmas early in our city.”
Lazatin, on the other note, likened the lighting of the tree with having hope during this season.
“I wish that upon lighting this tree, Fernandinos will realize that there is real light, and that light is hope. Let us all have that ‘hope’ in us during this wonderful season,” expressed Lazatin.
Apart from the traditional tree lighting, the signing of Memorandum of Agreement for the upcoming two (2) major festivals, the Sinukwan and Giant Lantern, among the city officials, Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC) Executives, and festivals committee members, was also staged.
Jodee Paulette Arroyo, Regional Operations Manager of RLC, revealed that the said festivals will once again happen in Robinsons – embracing the tag for the mall as “The Home of Kapampangan Festivals.”
“We’ve been hosting the Sinukwan Festival and Giant Lantern Festival for several years now and we are beyond grateful to our partners for their unwavering support and trust to Robinsons. This is part of our drive in promoting Kapampangan festivals,” cited Arroyo.
Meanwhile, the candidates for this year’s Lakan at Lakambini ning Sinukwan, including the eleven (11) participating barangays for the Giant Lantern Festival 2018 were also presented.
Sinukwan Festival will kick-off on November 23, while the GLF will happen on December 15.
