MANILA Mayor Honey Lacuna is inviting the public to visit the yearly “Paskuhan sa Mehan Garden” near the Manila City Hall.

The said Christmas activity that offically began December 15 treats the visitors to the daily lights and sounds shows and a bazaar that feature a good number of exhibitors selling various kinds of gift and food items.

“Tara na’t magfood trip at makipagkantahan kasama ang pamilya, katrabaho, kaibigan, o ka-ibigan. Huwag palalampasin ang iba’t ibang mga lokal na putahe at mga bilihin,” Lacuna said.

The lady mayor commended permits bureau chief Levi Facundo and tourism department chief Charlie Dungo for putting their efforts together to come up with the said project, aimed at helping small entrepreneurs and creating jobs in time for the holiday season.

She also stressed that the site of the said Christmas activity is an open air promenade where the risk of getting COVID is remote, on top of the admission being free.

Facundo meanwhile reported to Lacuna that the food festival is a hit among groups and families who flock to Mehan each day to eat together while enjoying the ambience and live performances that are also being offered free of charge.

The ‘Paskuhan sa Mehan Garden’ is open daily from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. up to January 1, 2023, Facundo said.

“We have street foods, grilling stations, ice cream novelty or gift items, memorabilias, photo booths, arcade and toys, among others,” he added.

It was learned from Facundo that around 70 stalls operate in the said venue and that their owners only pay hawkers’ fee amounting to P40 pesos a day.

Entry is allowed only until 10:15 p.m. and it will be closed on December 31, 2022.
