All of the lights used are LED lights encased in re-usable materials, which will be used for other light displays, also in keeping with Nuvali’s environmental sustainability efforts, as the community is built with green design and technology like solar panels and piping for recycling water.

Aside from the show, there are also Christmas markets and bazaars nearby, particularly at Nuvali’s Activity Park. On weekends especially, there are also food stalls selling Filipino delicacies like bibingka and puto bumbong in the Magical Field of Lights area.

While next year’s show and concept might be different, according to Nuvali’s marketing manager, Nuvali will now be making Christmas light and sound shows an annual holiday event like Ayala Triangle’s Festival of Lights. 

The Magical Field of Lights light and sound show runs every 30 minutes from 6 pm to 10 pm every night until January 8 next year. Venue is at the Fields, which is close to Solenad 3 and S & R. Check out more photos here.

How to get there: 

If you are going by private vehicle, drive to the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX). Nuvali can be accessed through any of the following exits: Sta. Rosa, Calamba, Silangan, Eton City-Greenfield, or Greenfield City/Unilab/Mamplasan.

If you are commuting, there are Nuvali-bound buses in Makati and vans in Alabang. You can also just take a Balibago-bound bus or van then ride a jeepney to Nuvali. Travel time takes around an hour from Makati and around 30 minutes from Alabang. 

Some notes and tips:

1. Check the weather forecast before you go. Shows sometimes get canceled when it rains, as some lights like the laser lights cannot get wet.

2. Go on a weeknight if you want to avoid the big weekend crowds. Weekends, though, are a good time to also catch other Christmas shows and events in Nuvali. If you are going on a weekend, you can watch from the back or the side of the field if you want more space. While you might not see the projected light patterns so clearly from these vantage points, the field’s lights and colors are still magnificent.

3. There are portable toilets in the area.

4. The light and sound show is not advisable for people with epilepsy. This precaution is also announced at the beginning of each show.

5. The terrain to the venue slightly slopes upwards, and can be challenging but still relatively manageable for people with physical disabilities.

6. In case of medical emergencies, there is a rescue nurse and ambulance on standby.
