With the opening salvo of the Dinagyang Festival 2018, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, scheduled to take place today at 2:00 p.m., Iloilo City Mayor Jose Espinosa III issued an executive order suspending classes at public schools this afternoon.
“Some streets will be closed here during the opening salvo,” he noted.
Immediately following the opening salvo will be a motorcade featuring the contestants for this year’s Miss Iloilo Dinagyang.
Festival highlights are scheduled for later this month, from January 26 to 28, which include the Kasadyahan Festival and Ati Tribes competition./PLL, WDJ
