This New York-Inspired Grand Christmas Parade Is Back in the Metro

It's a sight to behold.

(SPOT.ph) Following a successful first run in 2017, McKinley Hill in Taguig City is bringing back its Grand Christmas Parade inspired by Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York. So gather the family and get ready for the spectacle that starts at 5 p.m. on December 8.

This year's Grand Christmas Parade features 12 gigantic floats depicting the classic Christmas Train, an Asiatown Float, and the Venetian-inspired Rialto Bridge Float; 25-foot balloons shaped like the Gingerbread Man, Santa's reindeer, and even a unicorn; over 50 mascots, including the Powerpuff Girls and Ben10; and over a thousand musicians, dancers, and performers. Some of the biggest names in Philippine entertainment, Jessy Mendiola and Jericho Rosales, are also set to appear.
