In April, Panaad sa Negros Festival returns.
The Panaad sa Negros, the festival of all festivals in Negros Occidental, will return from April 17 to 23 following a three-year hiatus caused by the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) epidemic.
Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz II said on Tuesday that the festival would begin on February 13 at the Capitol Lagoon and Park.
He informed reporters that the province has set aside the PHP25 million that had been designated for big expenses.
The local government units would also receive financial support from the province government, which will come from a different account managed by the governor’s office, he said.
This year’s festival will debut an activity named the “Best of Negros Products,” in addition to the Lin-ay Sang Negros beauty pageant and the competition for traditional festival dances.
“It will include winners for both food and non-food products who have met national, regional, and provincial standards. Their accolades and goods will be shown, according to Diaz.
The 27th Panaad sa Negros Festival was scheduled to take place from April 20 to 26 in 2020, however the provincial government decided to postpone it due to the threat of Covid-19.
Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson continued, “Despite the initial preparations, the health, safety, and well-being of all Negrosanons are remain the priority.”
At the Panaad Park and Stadium in Barangay Mansilingan, the Panaad sa Negros, which is named after the Hiligaynon word for “vow” or “promise,” displays the 32 themed pavilions of each city and municipality of the province, including the capital Bacolod City. These pavilions are either designed as replicas of their own municipal or city halls or as displays of their well-known products.
After winning the Best Tourism Event – Provincial Festival title for the Panaad sa Negros Festival three years in a row in 2014, 2015, and 2016, Negros Occidental was raised to the Pearl Awards Hall of Fame in 2017.
