Himamaylan is one of the first LGU to light up this year.

Others would be over the Old Talaban Bridge, and the Public Plaza. 

The lighting ceremony officially ushered in the Christmas season in Himamaylan, and drew in crowds of people, as well as concerns for the lack of social distancing.

The skyline of Himamaylan was filled with lights of different colors, with the fountain area, railings, and the building itself festooned and exploding with lights.
