The 2010 Christmas Night Market at Vista del Mar Resort and Recreation Center was a big hit from December 10 to19. Thousands of Zamboangueños, their friends and visitors flocked the place and did their early Christmas shopping, dined out and had fun together.  Games, music and entertainment enlivened the affair nightly.

More than 20 participating outlets displayed and sold their products and services ranging from handicrafts, pastries, imported fashion lines, fashion accessories, jewelries, fruits, airline tickets, toys, spa services, food, and ornamentals. One stall owner divulged that they were able to make good sales in this event.

Authentic Italian Food was the highlight of the Christmas Night Market as Mario Lizzio and his good looking and muy simpatico sons prepared delizioso pasta and pizza before the guests and buyers. Bottles of bottles of Italian red and white wines also spiced up the evening. They were carefully selected and brought by Mario directly from Italy. It excited the wine drinkers that some buyers bought them all. It was a rare occasion to taste Italian food prepared by Italians right before your eyes using real Italian ingredients. They ran out of supplies within an hour or so after they set the table.

Our jolly City Mayor Celso Lobregat treated his guests with the Italian food. He also distributed apples to kids who were present in the spirit of Christmas.
