SM Pampanga’s Biggest Lantern of Hope lights up skies

The iconic Pampanga Eye, the biggest and tallest ferris wheel in the Philippines, transformed into the Biggest Lantern of Hope through a pyro musical show, brightening the sky in a grand magical fireworks display and colorful dancing lights synced with the all-time favorite Christmas carols.

Now on its 6th year, SM City Pampanga brought light and music again to the Christmas Capital of the Philippines on Dec. 16.

The 65 meter (or 213 feet) tall ferris wheel at the Sky Ranch sparkled with 17,664 dancing LED lights as well as additional colorful fireworks on the inner part of the wheel, on-ground and aerial fireworks.

Shoppers can also enjoy a spectacular 5-minute fireworks display at Sky Ranch which starts at 7 PM during all Fridays of December.
