Interesting and Memorable Ways to Spend Holy Week? Here's Where to Go!

These activities are great if you don't want to stay in.



Lent is not just about fasting and personal sacrifices. More than anything, it is a time for soul-searching, to reflect on how you have lived your life, so far. This type of activity does not really require you to go the distance. How about checking out your neighborhood?

 

You only need to know what’s going on around you to find what your soul is looking for. Even a simple trip to the mall gets spiritual, thanks to Ayala Malls’ line-up of events that you and your loved ones can participate in. From being part of the Stations of the Cross to listening to soulful music to joining traditional Easter egg-hunts and fairs, there’s a unique activity that suits adults and especially kids this coming Holy Week.

 

Here’s what to expect in Ayala Malls this Lenten season:

 

 

Glorietta

It’s an Easter-rific time at Glorietta! At the House of the Easter Bunny, you can take your wacky shots at the photo booth, get a glitter tattoo, have your face painted on, and decorate your very own cupcake! Foodies can indulge at the Chubby Bunny Food Fair as well.
