River Park @ Festival Mall, Filinvest City, Alabang
I have been a South Girl for most of my life and I am very familiar with all the places in the South, especially, FIlinvest City in Alabang. When Festival Mall first opened during my college years, I would always go there and check out the stores and sometimes hang out at the indoor amusement until closing. After joining Pinoy Big Brother, I’ve had to move around a lot to be near my place of work so it’s been a while since I last visited Filinvest City in Alabang.
Last Saturday, my family and I visited the newest hangout in the South, The River Park which is located next to Festival Mall (the side where Save More is). We got there right before sunset to do some errands at the main mall, so we were able to take a few pics with the sun kinda up pa at River Park. 🙂
I think the bridgeway is a perfect place to have your #OOTD shots 🙂 Asher also likes it. He liked practicing walking there 🙂
There is a pond and a stage area where I think concerts or mini shows will be held in the future. Why else would it be there! Plus, the mini ampitheater where the different light fixtures is perfect place for friends, couples, of familiies to hang out 🙂 Check out Asher enjoying himself, he was pointing at the lights on the trees 🙂
At night, the River Park lights look totally different. They look much more beautiful. Here’s the tree that I was talking about earlier where Asher was pointing to 🙂 I tried to get a good pic where there were not a lot of people but it was really hard since it was a busy Saturday and it was jampacked! 🙂
River Park has scheduled Christmas Musical Light Shows which was launched last December 1. Every thirty minutes, you’ll be able to watch the lights dance to different Christmas carols and every Saturday and Sunday, it ends with a grand fireworks display. The best seat in the house is the one outside the restaurants or on the other side of the river where the trees are.
River Park will also hold concerts every weekend for everyone to enjoy! Last Saturday, we were fortunate enough to watch Up Dharma Down. We were seated right infront of the stage. 🙂 For those of you who are wondering who will be performing next, here’s the sched: Dec 19: Jason Dy and Dec 26: Nyoy Volante 🙂
My fellow bloggers, David Guison and AJ Dee with Up Dharma Down’s Armi 🙂
After the concert, the Hubby Ryan, Asher and I got to walk around the River Park. Here is my favorite spot, the bridgeway. The lights are really nice and blue 🙂 Isn’t it obvious? haha 🙂 This pic was taken without the flash 🙂
Here’s another pic with the flash 🙂 I like it better 🙂
The River Park is the perfect place where you can bring your family to enjoy the Christmas Season. It doesn’t matter if you live in the North, South, or wherever. It’s worth the trip 🙂 There are many restaurants and coffee shops around the area where you can enjoy while you watch the Christmas Musical Lights show , concert and fireworks 🙂 There is also an area where Santa and his sleigh are. 🙂
Look at all those people enjoying the lights and sounds. You can be one of them, too 🙂
Asher was so sleepy in this picture. He kept walking and walking around with Mommy and Daddy while enjoying the lights and music 🙂 I suggest you all visit the River Park at Festival Mall, soon!!!!! 🙂
