The colorful light installation stands in the middle of the 3,600-square-meter eco-community. The festive light show comes from Light Director Voltaire de Jesus, who drew inspiration from the tulip fields in Holland conceptualized the local illuminating field.
Operated and maintained by the same team behind Ayala Triangle Gardens’ Light Festival, the Magical Field started in 2016. The Christmas Light show aims to ignite the holiday spirit during the Yuletide season. The initial light display of the Magical Field won the Silver Stevie Award for Best Exhibition Display.
The Magical Field of Lights features hundreds to thousands of vividly colored dandelion-like stems that change color, tube lights, and light spheres that resemble magical orbs. Scattered in the expansive grass field are LED Christmas trees.
A must-experience feature in this lively, illuminated field is the 50-meter spiral light tunnel leading to the Magical Field. You can spot other elements during the show such as fog and waves of color released above the lights field.
The light installation flickers every 30 minutes to the tune of Christmas songs we all know by heart – Ang Pasko ay Sumapit, Kumukutikutitap and Joy to the World. The beats and melody of each song aren’t the typical jazz tunes. The lights play along upbeat techno remixes familiar to millennials who frequent the lighted field.
The crowd can explore the rest of the field which contains various holiday-themed light installations. The area is open to anyone who wishes to create memories by capturing photos. Selfies are welcome amidst the bright green spaces.
