The activity, which is done every year, is in line with the city government’s Christmas celebration for kids, wherein they believe the season is for the children.
While waiting for their children, the parents were treated to make-up booth, massage, and hair cut for free.
Mayor Paz Radaza was present in both activities and where happy that the children, who came from various barangays, enjoyed the rides and the freebies.
“No amount of money can replace their happiness. They’re always my inspiration to do better things for the City,” she said.

The setting up of the Kiddie Land started back in 2012.
Last year, at least 20,987 children enjoyed the Kiddie Land. (FREEMAN)
