Christmas came early at the premier lifestyle destination, ResortsWorld Manila as they welcome the yuletide season with all smiles.
Running on its 6th year, Grand Fiesta Manila indulges everyone with a Christmas celebration inspired from MassKara Festival of Bacolod.

Similar to how the iconic parade breathes life to Bacolod’s distinction as the ‘City of Smiles’, this year’s Grand Fiesta Manila celebration crams the vibrant colors and merry imageries Filipinos are known for into a month-long marathon offering of the best concerts, parties, movies, shows, exhibits, promos, and exclusive events all under one roof.
