Guam Hilton launches holiday train display

HAGÅTÑA (The Guam Daily Post) — As it does every year, the Hilton Guam Resort & Spa is spreading holiday cheer with its holiday train display.

Crystal Sablan, Hilton’s director of marketing communications, confirmed that the display will continue until the first week of January.

“It’s an exciting event,” Sablan said. “We do a countdown and the kids launch the train to start the holiday season.”

Sablan said this year’s theme is White Christmas, and the Hilton lobby will be decked in white and silver.

Continuing in the tradition of giving, the Hilton has selected Victim Advocates Reaching Out as its nonprofit partner to receive a special holiday donation.

One young islander who was looking forward to the annual train launch is Nolan Bamba, whose mother Kallen Perez has taken him to the train launch since he was a 1-year-old.

“We’ve had so much fun the three years that we’ve gone,” Perez said. “All the kids get whistles. We really enjoyed it. It’s magical to see to see the kid’s faces light up at the beginning when the whole set lights up. It’s really special and signals the start of the holiday season. It’s something we look forward to every year.”
