The Christmas Tree Lighting in Malaybalay City

I was able to take some photos of the Christmas Tree Lighting activity held at Plaza Rizal, Malaybalay City just this night (December 1, 2010) at around 7 PM. I was with my officemate and fellow Bukidnon Bloggers member Bon Panganiban (visit his Bukidnon photoblog HERE).

Hundreds (or probably thousands) of people from all walks of life trooped to Plaza Rizal to witness the activity which officially kickstarts the Christmas Season here in Malaybalay City. Before the Christmas Tree Lighting, a brief program was held. The program was attended by Malaybalay City LGU officials led by City Mayor IƱaki Zubiri and Vice Mayor Vic Aldeguer together with the City Councilors. The Malaybalay City Band also provided live entertainment during the said activity.
