A merry mix of fun, music and yuletide cheer filled every nook of Casino Filipino’s 12 branches nationwide, as they recently welcomed the Christmas season in November with the simultaneous launch of “Maagang Pasko sa Casino Filipino”.

The different Casino Filipino branches launched last November 5 the month-long celebration of the early Holiday festivities.

Each CF branch had its own version of yuletide celebration, highlighting the Pinoy Christmas theme. Traditional Christmas carols filled the air, street parties were held, cultural dances and shows were showcased, parlor games were played and native delicacies, like bibingka wereserved. Some branches like CF Pavilion also gave away early Christmas gifts through an outreach activity for the less privileged residents of Manila.

The “Maagang Pasko sa Casino Filipino” celebration also featured some of the country’s finest artists, performing simultaneously in special musical concerts at the casinos like Prince of Pop Erik Santos (Airport Casino Filipino Paranaque), Rockoustic Princess Yeng Constantinto (CF Heritage), music heartthrob Dingdong Avanzado (CF Mimosa), sentimental balladeer Raymond Lauchengco (CF Angeles), jazz artist Richard Merck (CF Olongapo) and the Philippines’ premier vocal group The CompanY (Alegria Lounge of CF Pavilion).
