CEBU, Philippines — Christmas, the most anticipated holiday of the year, takes on a special celebration in the Queen City of the South, where tradition, faith and love for vibrant festivities are woven into the cultural fabric of Cebu.

Nestled in the heart of the South Road Properties, City di Mare (CDM) emerges as the epicenter of Christmas joy, where a dazzling array of activities and spaces come together to create a festive haven for Cebuanos and visitors alike.

A coastal wonderland

In the vast expanse of South Road Properties, CDM stands as the beacon of Christmas brilliance. The premier coastal city’s streets come alive with the spirit of the season, offering a spectacular backdrop for festive memories with family and friends.

At the heart of these celebrations is the opening of CDM’s enchanting outdoor Christmas Village, inviting one and all to partake in the merriment.

A sense of childlike wonder fills the air as magic and cheer unite in an outdoor interactive Christmas Road video display near the Visitor Center of CDM—the first of its kind in Cebu!

This interactive feature lets everyone follow the sparkles to discover the captivating Christmas Village at the end. Knock on Santa’s door at the Christmas Dome, where Santa and Mrs. Claus eagerly await to give gifts to the nice children who share their Christmas wishes.

A special treat awaits as Santa’s big red sleigh invites young and young at heart to sit and revel in the holiday spirit.

At the heart of CDM Open Park stands the golden Christmas tree, a radiant centerpiece that illuminates the surrounding open space, offering a picturesque setting for creating lasting memories with loved ones.

A fun activity for everyone

Also in CDM Open Park, Eats Bai the Park is a foodies’ dream, offering a diverse array of delectable food and beverages. It beckons the community to create their own small picnic beneath the enchanting glow of the Christmas tree.

From savory delights to guilty favorites, Eats Bai the Park promises good food, good music and good company—a trifecta of festive joy.

As the night unfolds, Il Corso invites families to experience “Stellar,” Cebu’s first Dancing Musical Fountain at the Central Piazza every weekend at 6 p.m.

Set to the melodies of beloved Christmas Carols, this visual spectacle paints the ocean view with a symphony of colors and patterns, creating an enchanting experience to remember.

A nearby destination

With sweeping views of the sea and mountains, CDM stands as a perfect getaway for those who love the outdoors. Its abundant parks and open spaces are freely accessible to the neighboring community.

Enjoy resort-style living in its residential enclave Sanremo Oasis and Amalfi. The premier lifestyle mall, Il Corso, offers exciting and endless choices for dining and shopping.

A mere 30-minute drive from the city center, CDM is easily accessible through the Cebu South Coastal Road and is just eight minutes away from the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway.

Don Ubaldo, First Vice President for Townships, shares, “We’re proud that the Filinvest Township DNA thrives here, back to where Filinvest all started. CDM is a place where Cebuanos and visitors from all over can commune and celebrate the vibrant and festive culture of Cebu. We hope that as CDM grows into a fully integrated city, spaces and activities will be a mainstay for community engagement in the years to come.”
