Saint Louis University In Baguio City Lights Up Its Giant Christmas Tree

In the evening of November 29, Saint Louis University (SLU) in Baguio City lit up its own giant Christmas tree which stands adjacent to the Jose Rizal Building within the campus. Thousands of students, guests and visitors attended the lighting ceremonies. A simple program and a mini-concert also graced the event. The Cordilleran Sun was there to witness the event. You can watch the lighting of the tree further below.

The lighting of the Christmas tree is part of the university's celebrations for its 103rd Foundation Day. Other events include a Run for Hope on November 30 and a highly-anticipated Lantern Parade in the early evening of December 1. Students and other participants in the parade will pass through Session Road and proceed to the Melvin Jones Football Grounds in Burnham Park.

The Lantern Parade also coincides with the launching of the Christmas in Baguio festivities. Session Road will be closed from midnight of November 30 to midnight of December 1 to give way to the events on said day. The giant Christmas tree on Session Road will also be lighted on the evening of December 1.

In the lighting ceremonies in Session Road, Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan and Congressman Nicasio Aliping are expected to deliver their respective messages. A fireworks display will cap off the night.
