Nuvali recently kicked off the second installment of the “Magical Field of Lights” which allows audience to have an immersive experience amidst a dancing field of over 5,000 enchanted LED tulips. Nuvali marketing manager Jenn Chua talks about the different Christmas treats that are in store for Nuvali’s residents and guests this year.
Tell us about the “Magical Field of Lights”.
The “ Magical Field of Lights” was the first in the Philippines to introduce a choreographed light and sound show in an open grass field. It uses over 5,000 LED bulbs that when viewed move like enchanted tulips, thanks to the talents of our engineers and designers who developed a combination of light-and-sound technology. The maiden show last year won a Silver Stevie Award for best exhibit display for being the first to mount a light and sound show and installation on an outdoor field.
What is the schedule of the light and sound show?
The show is open to the public from November 11, 2017 to January 7, 2018 and may be viewed nightly from 6:00 to 10:00 pm at the Nuvali football field also known as The Fields, right beside Ayala Malls Solenad.
What other attractions can audience see at The Fields?
Aside from the light and sound spectacle, we have also set up light installations around the field like the 25-meter long light tunnel, which is a crowd favorite and Instagram-worthy installation, festive LED Christmas trees, and dandelion light installations.
What is different this year compared to last year?
This year, the visitors can immerse themselves amidst the 5,000 LED bulbs between the shows. The lights are grouped in clusters that now allow the visitors to get closer to the lights. We added colorful light spheres scattered all over the fields as well.
The show also features three new medleys featuring popular songs such as Kumukutikutitap, Ang Pasko ay sumapit, and Joy to the World.
Why is Nuvali holding this light show again? How does it align with Nuvali’s positioning as an eco-city?
By deriving inspiration from nature and carefully studying the estate’s distinct landscape, the show would like to represent and highlight Nuvali’s generous 50-50 open-space to built-environment ratio. The “Magical Field of Lights” also encourages the community to enjoy the outdoors and Nuvali’s wide open lush spaces and provide a venue for families and the rest of the community to converge, interact and create memories at Nuvali.
Aside from the light and sound show, what other activities has Nuvali prepared for guests this Christmas?
There is the Christmas fair featuring artisanal goods products that showcase traditional Filipino Christmas culinary treats, as well as Christmas bazaars set up at Ayala Malls Solenad.
Another crowd favorite, we are bringing back Nightsky Cinema to offer a one-of-a-kind experience of watching movies outdoors and under the stars on the following dates:
November 25 – “Cinema Flicks” in partnership with Skycable
December 2 &3 – “A Holiday Weekend” in partnership with Fox Movies
December 16 – “OpenAir Cinema” with Cinema One
Before and after watching the “Magical Field of Lights”, visitors can visit the shops at Solenad or opt for a staycation at the 150-room Seda Hotel Nuvali. Nature lovers and adrenaline junkies can also check out Nuvali’s outdoor adventure playground and team-building facility Camp N to try out the roller-coaster zipline, Asia’s tallest Free Fall, wall climbing, obstacle courses and bike tracks.
How many visitors are you expecting to view this year’s show?
We expect to exceed last year’s numbers which recorded more than 900,000 visitors from Metro Manila as well as nearby cities like Laguna, Cavite, and Batangas.
