Following the success of the Iloilo Dinagyang 2020 with a ‘leveled up’ celebration, Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas wants the 48th Paraw Regatta Festival to also ‘level up’. The 48th Paraw Regatta Festival has been sealed with a memorandum of agreement among the Iloilo City Government, Iloilo Festivals Foundation Inc., and the Junior Chamber International (JCI) Iloilo.
“We want Paraw Regatta celebration to also level up in the same Dinagyang 2020 has leveled-up,” said Mayor Jerry P. Treñas, in a post by Panay News. This year’s Paraw Regatta Festival is themed ‘Ilonggo Sailing Tradition to the Next Level’ and will highlight the longest sailing event in Asia that will run from February 23 to March 1.
It can be recalled that the Iloilo Paraw Regatta committee has called for participants for its ‘Slalom and Main Sailing Race’ that is set to happen on the 26th of February of Slalom and 1st of March for the Main Sailing Race. Moreover, a Miss Paraw Regatta pageant was also organized.
