The Grand Launch of SM City Masinag’s Christmas Centerpiece, SANTA’S TOY FACTORY was held last November 9, 2012, 6 PM at the Mall Atrium.

Mall Lights were dimmed as we count down to the ceremonial ribbon cutting and lighting. The Giant Clock served as the guide as the program started at exactly 6:00 PM.
Prior to the program proper, shoppers were serenaded by the PLMAR Chorale and The Angono Chamber Orchestra with all-time favorite Christmas carols. A feature ballerina also performed The Russian Dance from The Nutcracker on top of the Giant Music Box.

The program started with a prayer and the Philippine National Anthem. Followed by the Welcome Remarks of Mr. Rejin Cruz, the Mall Manager of SM City Masinag.
The official SM Supermalls Christmas TVC was also played right after the Mall Manager’s speech. And before the ceremonial ribbon cutting and lighting, special messages were also imparted by the First Lady ofAntipolo, Atty. Mechie Leyble and Provincial Governor, Hon. Jun JunYnares.

Special guests were invited on stage for the ceremonial ribbon cutting including celebrity child actor, Jillian of ABS CBN. And of course, the ceremonial lighting was done by none other than the owner of the TOY FACTORY, SANTA CLAUS! Kids were delighted as we set alight the very colorful Toy Factory and the confetti blast was released. Kids can’t help but to jump for joy and wave their balloons as they  hurdle towards Santa Claus!

The SM Supermalls Christmas Jingle were also performed by the PLMAR Chorale and Angono Chamber Orchestra right after the ceremonial ribbon cutting and lighting. The complete cast of THE TALE OF TOYS Musical Play also gave a wonderful dance number and an excerpt of the play which will start on November 30, 2012.

Right before gift giving, the guests also placed their Bears of Joy on the Christmas tree. The program was concluded with the gift giving activity. The kids from City Gate Academy, Kids R Us Pre-school, BrgyMayamot Day Care and Beatalent Workshop were very happy to receive their gifts from Santa and the guest.
It was truly a magical event and it was very evident that the kids had a wonderful time. SANTA’S TOY FACTORY will be on display until January 6, 2013 for the whole family to enjoy. SM City Masinag will surely have a merry Christmas this year.
