Davao Lights Up for Christmas (2013) Photojournalist Jojie Alcantara goes around town one night to document gaily colored holiday bright lights festooned in the streets, illuminating Davao at its finest. Though most renowned for its “Silent Night” sans the noisy fireworks during this merry season, this big old city comes to life in a different way and lights up for the Christmas season once more in 2013.

People’s Park is a wonderful place to bring your kids and family over for a stroll where daily entertainment programs are now set for the holiday season. Outside the park are display stalls which sell assorted items and food for the Christmas bazaar.
Locals and tourists have something to stare at in delight at night. Evenings in the People’s Park (formerly the PTA Grounds) are filled with families and groups enjoying the cool breeze and marveling at the colored lights in splashing fountains beside the bridge.
