Vista Mall Bataan continues to enhance, enrich retail experiences for mall goers
Written by: Amy R. Remo
It was the first lifestyle mall of its scale to bet big on Bataan, bringing a whole new retail experience with its unique concepts, modern design and stylish, aesthetic spaces.
Since it opened in 2016, Vista Mall Bataan has given residents here one big beautiful destination whose offerings run the whole gamut from retail, restaurants, services to entertainment and leisure. Not only did it provide a better and more exciting shopping and dining experience to mallgoers here, it has also given new spaces where they can meet up with friends, enjoy music with the family, or discover new passions, interests and pursuits.
In 2022 alone, Vista Mall Bataan hosted an array of events catering to varied lifestyles, tastes and preferences. The “Farm to Table: Agrimarket” for example was done in partnership with the Department of Agriculture to provide a platform for local farmers and craftsmen to showcase their goods, while “DTI Likha ng Bataeños 2022” was one meaningful project with the Department of Trade and Industry to promote locally made products from the province of Bataan, in celebration of Women’s Month.
There were also fun mall shows, exciting meet and greet events, a flashy car display, a whimsical Disney show, trick or treat, competition for aspiring bands, Christmas revelries and more.
Vista Mall Bataan is also proudly home to the biggest anime convention in Bataan, which returned only last year. Bataan Anime Convention 2022 showcased anime merchandise, collectibles, manga and retro style gaming, and gathered a massive wave of cosplayers and anime aficionados who enjoyed a jam-packed day of fun activities.
Convergence, experience, and grandeur
This year, Vista Mall Bataan is raring to do even more as it creates new points of convergence, experience, and grandeur with its exciting line-up of events for you.
Since the start of the year, Vista Mall has been delighting mallgoers with a curated array of events catering to various passions, interests and pursuits.
In January alone, Vista Mall held a Chinese New Year celebration through a Dragon and Lion Dance to spread luck and prosperity within the mall premises, and hosted the star-studded cast of Darna including famed artists Jane De Leon, Janella Salvador, Paolo Gumabao, Zaijian Jaranilla, Mutya Orquia, and LA Santos.
It was all about kids last February as Vista Mall Bataan hosted a meet and greet with Pororo, the Little Penguin, as well as a painting session that taught participants to design their own tote bags. A pleasant addition was Mayonnaise’s continuation of its 20th anniversary tour.
In celebration of Women’s Month, a Bridal Fair in partnership with His & Her Weddings, Styling and Event was held at the atrium of Vista Mall Bataan last March, while the DTI Likha ng Bataeño Trade Fair showcased local Bataan favorites and delicacies. Kids, too, had a blast in March with another meet and greet with TAYO, the Little Bus, and a DIY slime activity, as part of the Vista Mall’s Kids Day Out activities.
Mallgoers had an amazing time watching the Karatedo championship, and Silent Sanctuary, which serenaded the crowd of Vista Mall Bataan.
Kids once again had a thrill of a lifetime at the fun and exciting Cirque de Magique: An Easter Adventure last April, while OPM viral sensation Lola Amour wowed crowds here. It was also about competitions too, as Vista Mall Bataan hosted the Munting Balanguena pre pageant night, the BFP Art and Essay Competition, and Central Luzon Regional Athletic Association Table Tennis meet.
The month of May has a lot in store for Vista Mall Bataan mallgoers too. There was a Kiddie Food Fair, Fast X car and motor display, a Mother’s Day celebration with a flute and violin serenade, an origami flower making activity for mom, meet and greet with Dibo, the Gift Dragon, and a mall tour of the cast of Voltes V and The Write One.
And that’s not all. In the coming months, Vista Mall Bataan has a lot more fun, thrilling events in store for its mallgoers, as it continues to provide Bataeños an elevated, enriching retail experience they deserve.
