Alviera offers a one-of-a-kind Christmas adventure for the whole family with the Christmas Jamboree on November 28 and 29 at Porac, Pampanga. It is a unique Yuletide celebration where you get to camp out under the stars and enjoy day-long arts and crafts workshops, live performances and holiday games.
During this weekend, SandBox transforms into a Christmas wonderland with festive workshop tents, life-sized Christmas displays and numerous parols or Pinoy Christmas lanterns lighting up the campsite. Alviera’s majestic 360-degree view of scenic hills and mountains enhance the fantasy setting.
“Alviera is here not just to merely create an economic hub, we are also making sure that the natural beauty of Porac is preserved and highlighted. Our role as a developer is to simply enhance God’s gift to us and the best way for people to appreciate this would be to bring them closer to nature through camping,” said John Estacio, Alviera General Manager.
Alviera is Ayala Land’s first master-planned estate in the north, in partnership with Leonio Land. A 1,100 hectare development, it is inspired by a philosophy of harmonious balance between urban living and nature.
“The Alviera Christmas Jamboree gives you a glimpse of what to expect in Alviera in the future. Even at full development there will be open spaces for everyone to enjoy. More importantly, we want to provide opportunities where families can create moments they can share together,” added Estacio.
Packages to the Alviera Christmas Jamboree come in Day Dasher and Christmas Camper variants. The Day Dasher package, at P1,900 per person, includes roundtrip transportation from Manila to Alviera, free use of SandBox attractions, access to all Christmas Jamboree Day Workshops, passes to the evening entertainment, stage shows and Starlight Cinema outdoor movie theater.

Guests can test one’s knowledge on Christmas trivia with Quiz Kringle. Each time they sign up for an activity, they get an entry to the hourly Jamboree raffle. There will also be all-day fun bubble activities with bubble artists.
Live entertainment begins at night with the “poi” or fire dancing and a Christmas carol serenade by some of the country’s top chorale groups. Guests can perform onstage during the Merry-oke open mic session, complete with a live brass band. After the Yuletide dinner, astronomy experts will lead constellation-tracking sessions. The “Starlight Cinema” opens from 9:00 p.m. until midnight to feature Christmas movie favorites.

Campers can also learn to play the ukulele during the workshop. A Christmas breakfast buffet awaits them the next morning, as well as Christmas stockings filled with surprise holiday goodies.
