MANILA, Philippines - Parents didn't mind that they had to go out on a Sunday and bring their kids to a super-packed mall.
It was, after all, the official launch of Christmas at TriNoma with the opening of their Merry Musical Lights presentation preceded by a short performance from YouTube sensation-turned-star Greyson Chance.
HAPPY YOUNG FAN. Greyson answered 3 questions from 3 fans in the middle of the program
Families and friends who were at the mall last November 11 had two choices: to enjoy Greyson Chance's music or to enjoy the festive atmosphere at the mall's Plaza Area where 3 floors of lights "dancing" to music dazzled the shoppers who were either going in or coming out of the mall, or who were just there at the garden to enjoy the holiday vibe.
Check out Rappler's videos and photos of the event:
