The 1.1-kilometer Festive Walk Parade is divided into four phases. It will house local and legendary Ilonggo restaurants and some international brands that will add more options for the Ilonggos and vistors alike.

“With the opening of the first phase of the Festive Walk Parade this Christmas season, Ilonggos will get a taste of the experience that a Megaworld Lifestyle Mall offers.

Tan, senior vice president and head, Megaworld Lifestyle Malls. 

The exterior design of the Festive Walk Parade is patterned to Santana Row development in California, with some touches of art nouveau and art deco to pay homage to Iloilo’s own architectural heritage.

The development will also feature Casa Empreador which will house the Casa Emperador at its 2nd and 3rd floors.The museum will showcase the rich history and vast collection of one of the world’s biggest brandy producer, Emperador Distillers Inc. Casa Emperador’s facade echoes Iloilo's very own Provincial Capitol with impressive neoclassical design and proportions, evoking the aesthetics of old European palaces.

Completing the Ilonggo feel of The festive Walk Parade is the monument of Ilonggo revolutionary hero General Martin Delgado which will stand at the Park Square.

“The Festive Walk Parade will serve as a cultural and historical manifesto for Iloilo, a celebration of its heritage and future, establishing a place of economic and civic vibrancy, life and activity,” Tan added.
