(Press Release) — First lady Diann Torres will be bringing back “A Christmas Village” scheduled to light up this coming Sunday, Nov. 26, at 6 p.m. in the courtyard of the Gov. Pedro P. Tenorio Multi-Purpose Center.
With the help of a few partners and sponsors, the village will be housing more themes this year with slight changes to the village layout to ease traffic and expand lounging areas.
There will be live village nights every Tuesday, which will feature live performances and an array of food vendors.
Like last year, the general public will be given a chance to vote for the “Best Theme.” Previous year’s winner was The Grinch by the Department of Public Safety.
“Many were extremely satisfied with last year’s Christmas Village,” said first lady Diann Torres “It is only right that we bring it back for everyone to enjoy.”
She said a few adjustments were made to accommodate more people and to create a more exciting atmosphere.
