TACLOBAN CITY- The Sangyaw Festival’s “Parade of Lights” will serve as among the highlights of the annual fiesta of Tacloban.
And to live up on its name as one of the fast-emerging festivals in the country, contingents coming from different schools and barangays of the city will parade around Tacloban’s main streets on June 29, vesper day of the fiesta which gives honor to its patron, Senior Santo Nino.
Emphasizing their 3LED light creations in floats and costumes, ten contingents will be competing for the best school contingent for the school-based category and another 10 for the best barangay parade float for the body of the Parade of Lights and six for the Sangyaw merry makers.
Big prizes are at stake to the lucky top three winners, its designers and choreographers.
Councilor Cristina Romualdez, executive committee chair of Sangyaw, enjoins all the Taclobanons and visitors to come and see the Sangyaw “Parade of Lights” and be part of the festivities Taclobanons prepared to show to the world that indeed Tacloban is now back on its feet more than a year after it was devastated by supertyphoon “Yolanda.” (GAY B.GASPAY, TISAT)
