SAN MIGUEL, Leyte- The holding of music and art festival in their town was a big boost to their local tourism.
Thus said Mayor Cheeryl Enrica Esperas as she lauded the organizers of the ‘For the Love of Leyte’ which initiated a four-day music and arts festival in Barangay Guinciaman.
“This very big event will boost the tourism of our humble municipality,” Esperas said.
Thousands witnessed the ‘Woodstock’-style event held in a sprawling private-owned property in Brgy. Guinciaman.
According to Esperas, the November 30-December 2 event also helped the transport sector of the town as they were serviced by those who attended the event.
The town mayor added that local weavers also benefited from the show as they were featured in the event.
The site itself, owned by the family of Leyte Rep. Vicente Veloso (3d district), is considered as a farm school.
Kaye Veloso, who spearheaded the event, thanked those who attended the occasion, which is now on its second year.
