The San Juanico Bridge is the newest tourism destination in the province of Samar, and the provincial government has released the schedule of light displays there.

The bridge will be illuminated by static light on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 6 p.m. to midnight. Additionally, the bridge will host four 15-minute light performances between 7 and 10 o’clock in the evening.

Static light will still illuminate the building on Mondays through Thursdays when there are far fewer visitors, but just from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The Samar provincial administration announced a light show on Monday. “The dynamic display contains the mesmerizing light show while the static display features the continuous red, blue, and green color display,” it added.

The initiative, worth PHP80 million and supported by the Tourism Enterprise Zone Authority, is advocated by the local government.

The provincial government will be responsible for both paying the electricity bill and maintaining the lights.

Visitors might eat at San Juan by the Bay or Pascualino’s Ristorante Italiano and take in the illuminated bridge, according to the local authorities. Tourists were advised to take the San Juanico Cruises if they wanted to see the bridge from a different perspective.

On the evening of October 20, President Ferdinand R. Marcos officially turned on the San Juanico Bridge decorative lighting project.

As Samar slowly recovers from the effects of natural disasters, the lighting of the San Juanico Bridge heralds the island’s opportunity to “shine,” according to governor Sharee Ann Tan.

The longest bridge on the Pan-Philippine Highway, which connects Luzon and Mindanao, is the 2.16-kilometer-long San Juanico Bridge, which runs from Samar to Leyte Island.

The bridge, which was started in August 1969 and finished in 1972, has withstood the test of disaster, withstanding Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), which devastated Eastern Visayas on November 8, 2013.
