The fiesta fever is here and for the months of May and June, it’s fiesta time for a lot of municipalities in Eastern Visayas.
Not to be outdone and a good full month before Tacloban City’s own fiesta on June 29 & 30, the Leyte Provincial Government yesterday fired the opening salvo for the city’s fiesta celebration with the inaugural opening of the Pintados-Kasadyaan Festival Park at the RTR Plaza.
This signals the start of the nightly concerts, cultural shows and an array of fiesta activities to culminate on the Feast of Señor Sto. Niño of Tacloban on June 30. The activities set at the Festival Park are being undertaken thru the sponsorship of the Leyte Provincial Government led by Gov. Icot Petilla, the Pintados Foundation and the Leyte Provincial Tourism, Culture & Arts Council.
Here’s the scene at the grand opening of the Pintados-Kasadyaan Festival Park last night…
