Local artists will also be selling handmade jewelry, key chains and tote bags — perfect for anyone on your holiday gift list.
You’ll also be able to take photos in front of Konstelasyon (constellation), a Christmas light display made of parols, colourful star-shaped lanterns used for decoration in the Philippines during Christmas.
