blink I bmobile celebrates at Christmas Village 2012

This youngster is determined to prove his strength against Jehue Gordon in the Xbox 360 Connect Olympics hurdles event

In an effort to encourage the local community to participate in the rich Christmas tradition of our nation, a ten-day celebration was hosted recently at the Christmas Village 2012 with the help of blink I bmobile.

Our local culture forms a part of the wealth of our country and it is significant to the company that initiatives like Christmas Village which focus on showcasing the customs of T&T be supported. The company strongly believes that the traditions of our local community need to be constantly reinforced in order to ensure their continuity.

The seventh annual Christmas Village took place at Oasis Gardens, San Fernando from 7th – 16th December 2012. The venue was transformed to an “ole time village” which showcased the indigenous heritage and cultural traditions of Christmas in Trinidad and Tobago. Over the ten days visitors experienced a true Trinbagonian Christmas inclusive of delightful food and a range of Christmas entertainment from traditional parang, steel orchestras, dance competitions and even spoken word poetry.

A Christmas blink I bmobile booth was set up at the village with company representatives tending to the needs of customers so that they could enjoy the festivity around them and conveniently take care of their technological needs. Guests were also treated to some friendly fun as they competed against each other in sporting events in Xbox 360 Connect Sports.

Christmas Village attendees were given an early “gift” for the season with visits from blink I bmobile sport ambassadors and Olympic athletes Nijsane Phillip and Jehue Gordon who spent time creating some memorable experiences with guests as they tested their fitness and had fun with the Xbox 360 Connect Sports. Jehue delighted fans at the Village by showing up on his birthday, Saturday 15th December to share his celebration with them. He was honoured with a rendition of the happy birthday song by everyone in attendance. 

blink I bmobile thanks Nijsane and Jehue for contributing to the good cheer at the Christmas Village 2012.  The love we experience as a nation at Christmas time was most present at this event and Christmas Village 2012 provided the ideal forum to start off this joyful season.
