Hagåtña, Guam – Governor Lou Leon Guerrero, Lieutenant Governor Josh Tenorio, and the Guam Museum Foundation invite the island community to celebrate the holiday season by visiting the Electric Winter Wonderland in downtown Hagåtña. Skinner Plaza will be decorated with Christmas lights, pixelating trees, holiday arches, and blizzards of snow for the community to enjoy from December 2, 2021 to January 8, 2022. Organizers will continue adding to the exciting light display leading up to Christmas Day. Special light shows will be featured in 30-minute intervals every Thursday to Sunday from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. COVID-19 social gathering limits will be enforced and mask-wearing is required.
“This year has brought many challenges for our island and people, so it has been a goal of our administration to work hard at beating this virus in time for our community to enjoy real relief and see a safe return to some holiday traditions this festive season. Certainly, this is an early Christmas gift for Guam and for that, we give thanks,” said Governor Leon Guerrero.
“We are encouraged by our downward trend of cases and hospitalizations, which gives us hope that cheerful community events such as this will remind everyone of what is possible when we work together for the good of all,” said Lt. Governor Tenorio.
“The Guam Museum wants to ring in the holiday season in the spirit of hope, joy, and merriment,” said Dave Tydingco, Chairman of the Guam Museum Foundation. “In the spirit of sustainability, we will be illuminating the heart of our island with decorations from previous years, but we are also introducing new features, including an interactive display of Christmas lights, pixelating trees, holiday arches, and a blizzard of snow after every light show.”
