Iloilo City is now decorated with lanterns. According to Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treňas, the parols will give Iloilo a Christmas vibe. Treňas thanks Task Force Boltahe led by Engr Badong Pedregosa and the Philippine Chamber of Commerce Industry led by Corporate Treasurer Marites Lim for the initiative, as well as the people who created the parols.
“We would like to light up the entire city as we celebrate the merriest season of all. These are the parols that will give Iloiloa more colorful and dazzling Christmas vibe. We are looking forward for a joyful Christmas celebration. Indeed, the most wonderful time of the year has come,” states Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treňas in a Facebook post.
The mayor also announced that the lanterns and lights in all plazas will be lighted on November 16. It can be recalled that giant companies like Megaworld Corporation and SM Group had their own respective Christmas launches. Furthermore, other establishments are expected to have their own lighting ceremonies as well.
