In his recent address to the National Association of Independent Travel Agencies (NAITAS) meeting, Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia requested they promote the city’s MassKara and Bacolaodiat festivals.
“Tourism will become the biggest industry in the world,” he stated. “We would like to be a part of this growth.”
“You are in the right business and we would like to ride that tide with you,” the mayor noted.
He also affirmed the Bacolaodiat Festival is the largest Lunar New Year celebration in the country outside of Manila.
“Consider selling this festival to China,” suggested Leonardia. “They can hit two birds: Visit a foreign land and, at the same time, celebrate Chinese New Year.”/WDJ
