CALACA, Batangas – This municipality’s candy-themed Christmas Village has emerged as a major tourist attraction.
The ‘Candyland’ Christmas Village was designed and prepared by municipal employees, with each department coming up with a unique design.
Mayor Sofronio Manuel Ona said the Christmas Village has become a yearly present of the municipality to the people of Calaca to further ramp up the Christmas spirit.
The Christmas display in front of the municipal hall, which presents a different theme each year, has since become a tourist attraction, said Ona.
Local and foreign tourists can be seen usually at night taking snapshots of the Christmas display, which is also a favorite backdrop for ‘selfies’.
