Palo Christmas Festival 2010 is on!

The Municipality of Palo, on a bid to reclaim its title as the Christmas Capital of Leyte, launched the Palo Christmas Festival 2010 with blazing lights during Switch-on Ceremonies held December 15, 2010 at the town’s plaza.

With the theme, “Du-aw ha Palo, Lamrag ha Pasko,” the switching on of the lights led by Governor Jericho “Icot” Petilla and Mayor Remedios “Matin” Petilla instantly transformed the plaza and nearby barangays into a Christmas fantasy land.

Currently on exhibit at the plaza are the various Belen or Nativity Display entries constructed out of indigenous materials by barangay participants in the Belen Contest.

The ceremonial switch-on program also launched the town’s new tourism-drive tagline, “Enchanting Palo.”

The Christmas Festival will be on till January 08, 2011.
