The Christmas atmosphere is now felt in the Municipality of Tagoloan in Misamis Oriental with last night’s ceremonial switching on of its giant Christmas Tree at the municipal plaza.
Thousands of local townsfolk as well as those coming from nearby towns gathered at the town plaza to witness a fiesta-type celebration of the event.
Cameras and cellphones clicked as the conical figure illuminates the town.
Check out the large crowd at the event.
Local traffic officers had to control the slowing traffic in the area as motorists too took some time to witness the momentous event.
The giant Christmas Tree is considered to be the largest in the province.
