The holiday festivities have officially begun at the heart of Manila as SM City Manila launches Icy Wonderland, a dazzling display of Christmas in winter. Complete with an endless blanket of snow, twinkling snowflakes, arctic animals coming to life, and an enormous Christmas tree, this display is perfect to spread the holiday cheer among families visiting the mall this Christmas season.

Christmas spirit was in the air as guests and mallgoers were welcomed with Christmas carols performed by the NU Chorale. This musical treat was then followed by exciting performances from 2019 World Dance PH Finalist, Move To The Groove, and Kapamilya actress, Elisse Joson, who is joined by cute Icy Wonderland characters. The guests were kept energized by vlogger host, Janeena Chan and an appearance from guest celebrity families: the Lizardo and Sup-sup-Lee family.

Completing the magical Christmas display at SM City Manila is an enormous Christmas tree, adding twinkle at the mall during the most wonderful time of the year. Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna - Pangan, along with Manila City Administrator Felix Espiritu, led the lighting of the tree, signalling the start of the Christmas celebrations at SM City Manila.
