Tagum to light gi­ant tree

Sun.Star Davao - - SOUTHERN -

TAGUM CITY – On its sec­ond year, the Tagum City gov­ern­ment is all set for the gi­ant hol­i­day tree light­ing next week, promis­ing a brighter and col­or­ful Yule­tide pro­gram led by Mayor Al­lan Rel­lon.

“This year the gi­ant hol­i­day tree will be more elab­o­rate, more col­or­ful and more sym­bolic, that is some­thing dif­fer­ent from last year,” the mayor said.

He said the gi­ant Christ­mas tree, which stands at the front ground of the City Hall, would be one foot higher than last year’s 172 feet Christ­mas Tree be­cause of a taller sym­bol on top of the tree. Last year it had an eight-pointed star at the apex.

The light­ing of the gi­ant Christ­mas tree is set in the evening of Novem­ber 25, the eve of the city’s Christ the King parochial feast and the ar­rival of the Boy Scouts lo­cal and for­eign of­fi­cials for the 6th ASEAN Scout Jam­boree on Novem­ber 27.

“The lead­ers of the ASEAN Jam­boree will be val­ued guests who will wit­ness the light­ing of our gi­ant hol­i­day tree,” Rel­lon said.

The new gi­ant hol­i­day tree lo­cated right at the New City Hall was first launched last year af­ter the old gi­ant Christ­mas tree was dis­con­tin­ued at the Free­dom Stage grounds.

The gi­ant Christ­mas tree tra­di­tion has been an at­trac­tion each Yule­tide Sea­son since the late 90s.

As in the past, thou­sands of multi-col­ored mag­nif­i­cent small lights and daz­zling col­or­ful lan­terns and decors strewn around the hol­i­day tree are ex­pected to sparkle and give a good night shot ideal for self­ies.
