12/30/15 Update: New Year's Eve Manila 2016: Awesome Guide to a Dazzling New Year!
1. THE STAR DROP @ EASTWOOD MALL QC COUNTDOWN
The Eastwood Mall Quezon City Countdown is picking up steam as one of the most anticipated countdowns on New Year's eve. It is Manila's answer to New York's Times Square Countdown -- with the best bands, the coolest fireworks and, this year, the Star Drop at 12mn.
The countdown will be led by Mr. Pure Energy himself, Gary Valenciano, with his sons Paolo and Gab Valenciano, and the Adlibb dancers. Witness the stellar performances of local artists like Billy Crawford, The Dawn, Amber Davis, Urbanation, and Philippine All Stars.
The program is for free at the Eastwood Mall Open Park, 6pm onwards.
Sendong Charity Efforts:
Eastwood Mall has a drop box at the concierge for donations. The Eastwood Foundation and the Holy Family Chapel are donating 1 Million Pesos to the Sendong Rehabilitation efforts.
