Amid the ongoing threat from the coronavirus disease, or Covid-19, the Iloilo City government announced upcoming major events have been postponed including “moving up” ceremonies, the Iloilo Summer Arts Festival, and the already-rescheduled Iloilo Paraw Regatta Festival.
“The safety of all Ilonggos is the paramount consideration for all our decisions,” explained Iloilo City Mayor Jerry P. Treñas. “We will do our best to make Iloilo safe for everyone.”
“We request the utmost cooperation of everyone as we experience this medical issue,” he added.
The mayor said the arts festival will be held in October; however, he has yet to meet with organizers of the Paraw Regatta Festival, which was originally scheduled from February 23 to March 1 and later rescheduled to run from April 1 to 5 prior to the latest postponement./WDJ
