Its definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas especially at Lancaster New City Cavite as it formally began its holiday celebrations with a Christmas Light Show and a grand concert featuring RockSteddy.
Lancaster New City is a thriving township that is home to families in Kawit, Imus, and General Trias in Cavite. This year, it celebrates its 10th anniversary by continuing its three-year Christmas tradition spanning the whole holiday season, promising a memorable bonding experience for families of homeowners and guests alike.
The concert and light show was held on Saturday, Nov. 25 and I was lucky enough to join the festivities for the second time.I must admit I was quite shocked by how a lot of things changed since they first held a Christmas gift giving event in 2015. Back then the event was held at the Leighton Hall where “Santa’s Little Helpers” surprised about 600 families during the 2-day event. Read our story HERE
I missed last year’s Christmas event but I heard they had an open air cinema screening and lots of other games for their growing community.
And boy has their community grown.
From less than a thousand families in 2015, Lancaster New City is now home to around 10,000 families!
Unlike the first year when all we had to do was find a vacant seat, this year the entire open field behind The Square was filled with people–eating at the food stalls, shopping at the nearby stalls and families having their photos taken at the Christmas displays.
It was totally unexpected, but it was nice to know that the developers never forgot their commitment to provide their residents something to look forward to every Christmas season.
From Nov. 25 – Dec. 26, every Saturday and Sunday, the Christmas Light Show at Lancaster New City will showcase a dazzling display of laser and stop-motion lights, a Santa’s Workshop exhibition, and Christmas medleys for the enjoyment of kids and kids-at-heart. The Dekada Food Bazaar will also be open on Wednesdays to Saturdays from 4 p.m. until midnight to let every family have a scrumptious dinner while watching the light show at the Central Greens.
Another new attraction is the grand reveal of the 20-foot family sculpture called “Perpetuity” created by award-winning Filipino artist Merlito Gepte on Dec. 9. The artist is known for his classical realist style with a touch of contemporary inspiration. “Perpetuity” is the symbol for the happy, united, and active family that Lancaster New City is home to.
Families are then invited to come together at the Open Air Cinema in Central Greens for some fun Christmas-themed games and a free film showing of Star Cinema blockbusters “Love You to the Stars and Back” and “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
On Dec. 16, Imago, Six Cycle Mind, Banda ni Keggy, Stellar, and Grace Note will be holding a special Christmas concert at The Square, Lancaster New City’s own commercial establishment located in Downtown Lancaster where the township’s busy business and retail district is found.
Since no Filipino Christmas is complete without Simbang Gabi, Lancaster New City will be concluding its month-long lineup of holiday events with Simbang Gabi at the uniquely-structured Parish of the Holy Family from Dec. 16-24 at 4:00 a.m., with anticipated masses on Dec. 15-23, 7:00 p.m.
The community of Lancaster New City continues to flourish, and it may very well be attributed to its warm environment and ability to keep in step with the times. The 1,600-hectare mixed-use development houses more than just a residential area, a mall, and a church. It also has a bustling IT park called the Suntech iPark in Downtown Lancaster. This establishment prides itself in being the first IT park accredited by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA), proving its global competence as an ecologically sustainable business environment.
Not to mention the many conveniences offered by the township, namely, its own Transport Hub that gives residents easy access to buses and shuttles for an easy commute around the development. Also conveniently located inside Lancaster New City is St. Edward Integrated School (SEIS), a private school for students from kindergarten to high school. There is also the Leighton Hall Clubhouse with its own outdoor pool and ballroom for various events.
Parent or child, student or professional, the whole family may find home in the ever-growing community of Lancaster New City, a family-friendly city where friends and loved ones alike can come together to share unforgettable memories.
Lancaster New City is the flagship project by Property Company of Friends or PRO-FRIENDS, one of the country’s fastest growing property developers. Since its inception in 1999, PRO-FRIENDS has grown to provide houses, condominium units, and other estates for various markets.
