(Tumon, Guam) The Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB) invites the island community and its visitors to experience the magic of the holiday season with the return of the GVB Christmas Village on December 17, 2018, located next to Tumon Sands Plaza.
The theme for the annual holiday illumination project is called, Holiday Tide-ings, and incorporates Guam’s marine life and the ocean. The theme celebrates Guam's heritage and culture by reinterpreting the manger scene with Chamorro icons and symbols.
