It may not seem so but it smells like Christmas already!! Once more Malaga is being dressed up for Christmas by Iluminaciones Ximenez in charge of Malaga Christmas Lights 2019. This year Christmas Lights will be first switched on November the 29th, concurrent with Black Friday and the beginning of Christmas shoppings. Last year more than 30.000 people gathered on Larios street to behold the light and sound show, a number expected to increase with a new illumination which will turn Larios Street into a Christmas forest.
How to enjoy the Malagas Christmas Lights 2019
The first thing is to warn you that thousands of people come every year to see this Christmas show and specially the lighting inauguration, so we recommend to get there early in order to pick a good viewing spot at Plaza de la Constitución to enjoy the synchronized light and music show and the lighting of the Christmas tree at Plaza Constitucion.
Christmas lighting and music will be on the streets until January 6th, one day after the Three Wise Men visit Málaga and leave their presents at our homes.
Every year the spectacular Christmas lighting in Malaga city centre becomes a point of interest to thousands of visitors.
Christmas light and music show Schedule
Once Christmas lighting is inaugurated on November 29th, each light and music show at Larios Street will take place at 18:30, 20:00 and 21:30 hours. The songs selected to make the Christmas forest alive are:
“All I want for Christmas is you”, by Mariah Carey
“Jingle bell rock”, by Hilary Duff
“En Navidad”, by Javián, Alex, David Bustamante and OT Academy with Rosana
“Never back down (Battlecry)”, from TSFH recorded by the Sofia Session Orchestra
An International Christmas lighting
For several years, Iluminaciones Ximénez has been the company responsible for assembly of Malaga Christmas lights. This Andalucian company is once again responsible for Malaga Christmas Lights 2019. Ximenez is also present in major lighting projects in London, Los Angeles, Chile, Brazil, Dubai or South Africa.Its incredible internationalization is due to the component of exclusivity that comes from its decorative lighting projects, which is what really sets it apart from the rest of the companies in the sector.
Alameda Principal Christmas lights
Let’s not forget about the lights in the neighbouring streets to Larios, like the investment of and extra 265.999 euros in new lighting for the Alameda Principal, remodeled and opened to traffic and people just one month ago.
Christmas trees in Malaga
Seven large Christmas trees will be placed across different parts of the city. To find them you’ll need to go to Parque Huelin, Teatro Cervantes or Alcazabilla Street among others. However the biggest one will be the one placed at Plaza de la Constitución. Though we still don’t know if it will be like the 18 meter (60 feet) Christmas tree last year we are sure it will still be spectacular.
