Just recently, the Iloilo City Government page revealed the schedule of activities for the 48th Iloilo Guimaras Paraw Regatta Festival. Scheduled February 23 to March 1, the festival has theme ‘Ilonggo Sailing Tradition to the Next Level’. It can be recalled that Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas publicly shared that he wants the festival to ‘level up’ also as it follows the recently concluded Iloilo Dinagyang 2020.
“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. The festival will highlight the longest sailing event in Asia. 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.
