The SM Mall of Asia Lights Up, Sanrio-style!

If you follow me in Instagram, you'd know how excited I was to attend The Grand Festival of Lights Parade. Thanks to my favorite Ms. Lanie of Mommy Bloggers Philippines, we got to enjoy the event VIP Style!

Hello Kitty and her friends are in town to bring the Christmas cheer! Join the gang as they bring season’s greetings all around the Mall of Asia grounds in the Grand Festival of Lights every Saturday from November 29 to December 25.

There was a pre-launch party held at TGI Fridays. We met lots of other Momma Bloggers and some celebrity kids waiting to see Hello Kitty! Mila had the grandest time, running and dancing. She had her tummy full from the candy buffet (only apples and wafers for her though) and her favorite spaghetti.

Happy family weekend! We love that velvet rope!
At about 5:30PM, we were escorted to our VIP seats! We were in the front row and Mila was just shouting with delight. I must say, I enjoyed the show more than Mila did. I guess she got too tired during the party and the lights and sounds are a little too much for my weary babe. She was still a trouper though, pointing and wow-ing on every float that pass right in front of us.

This is the 6th year that SM MOA will hold its Christmas parade, and it keeps getting bigger and grander where thousands are expected to witness this year’s SM MOA holiday treat! For this year, Hello Kitty and other beloved characters such as Keroppi, Little Twin Stars, Badtz-Maru, My Melody and many more will spread joy and happiness for fans of any age. The 12 colorful Sanrio mascot floats, which depict Christmas celebrations around the world, was accompanied by a parade of mascots, dancers and performers to add to the fun!

The Grand Festival of Lights motorcade will be held every Saturday starting on November 29, until Christmas day. The parades, which will start at 5:30 p.m., will begin from the North Arcade and end at the SM MOA By the Bay with a big bang via a grand fireworks display. A special Christmas Day parade also awaits the young and young-at-heart, with more surprises and spectacles in store for holiday shoppers! 


Christmas is the best time to create new memories, and there is no better way to spend it with loved ones than to enjoy the sights and sounds of the season. The Mall of Asia is perfect for those who want to bond with friends and family with fun activities for one and all! Here are other activities to look forward to during the holidays: Witness the magical SM By the Bay Tree Lighting Ceremony on November 29, Meet and Greet Santa Claus at 3 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday at the Main Mall Atrium; and enjoy Pyromusical Weekends every Saturday and Sunday at 7 p.m. at the SM MOA By the Bay.

  11. Sayang, I wasn't able to go. I would have loved to bring my son to these kinds of events kaso given my work schedule, he has to stay with my family in Baguio. He definitely loves the lights

  17. it was unfortunate that we were not able to make it to this event. MOA is a far off place for someone living in the north. my little man would've loved + enjoyed the grand parade of lights much like your little gal. hopefully we can catch this before it ends

    Forgive me if I didn't say hi during the event. I'm just a little shy sometimes and not good with faces.
    I'm so happy I won that TV. Minsan lang yun. :)
