Mabalacat to open ‘Christmas Village’ by December

MABALACAT CITY — After a 2-year hiatus, the city government here is set to launch the “Mabalacat City Christmas Village: Margarbong Crismas 2022” to remind Mabalaquenians the importance of sharing this joyful occasion with our loved ones.

 To celebrate this year’s Yuletide season as big and colorful as ever before, the City Christmas Village will feature various christmas attractions, carnival rides, concerts and food bazaars. 

The Christmas-themed village will be set on a 1.3-hectare land along MacArthur Highway in Barangay Mabiga (beside the San Rafael Church). 

The theme park will be open in December and admission is free for everyone. 

Through Margarbong Crismas 2022, Mayor Crisostomo Garbo, along with Vice Mayor Gerald Aquino and the members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod, hopes to uplift the spirit of Christmas despite the downturns by the global pandemic. 

“This will also highlight the resiliency of the Mabalaquenians during the recent calamities that hit the city,” said Garbo.

Further details will be announced at the city’s official Facebook page and online news portal, Mabalacat City News.
