What sets this year's Quezon City Festival different from last year is the inclusion of shops and activities that will surely invigorate the Christmas atmosphere in the area. Maginhawa resident establishments will be part of a Christmas Decoration Contest where the best ornamented establishments can win exciting prizes. The competition will surely light up the entire stretch of Maginhawa to make the occasion more fun and festive.
