The go-to Christmas bazaar of the South is no more. According to reports from alabangbulletin.com, there will officially be no St. James The Great Christmas Bazaar happening this year.

No St. James Christmas Bazaar this year

For the past 25 years, St. James has been the most awaited bazaar in the south. It usually took place in the Cuenca Covered Courts inside Ayala Alabang, but not this year. Residents of the exclusive village have drawn the line and decided not to host the bazaar citing concerns such as heavy traffic and security risks.

Does this mean no more St. James Christmas Bazaar forever? No word on that yet.

The website also disputed the rumors that there will be a St. James Bazaar will be taking place instead in a Filinvest tent.
