One of the highlights of the event was the unveiling of the Maitum landmark at their Children’s Park. Municipal officials, headed by Mayor Alexander Bryan Reganit, as well as LGU department heads, attended the event. There was also a ceremonial lighting of 37ft. giant Christmas tree in front of the Maitum municipal building.

The five entries are being displayed in front of the municipal hall building, in which it becomes a Christmas park village during the night.

The Light-a-Tree contest under the initiative of Mayor Reganit has always been an attraction to visitors from other towns and provinces since 2016. 

The light-a-tree contest has day and night judging with three phases. The first was on December 9, the second will be on December 21, and the final judging will be on January 24, 2023 during the celebration of Bangsi Festival.
