Mayor Inday Sara Duterte reminded Dabawenyos to remember those who are in need as the city opened its Pasko Fiesta celebration on December 1.
“Nanghinaot ako nga dili nato kalimtan ang atong mga kaigsoonang nag paet ug nagkalisod. For this Christmas 2017, we have prepared four areas for our enjoyment – Let us be a light to help illuminate the lives of the Dabawenyos,” Mayor Inday said.
The four areas are: Rizal Park, People’s Park, Magsaysay Park, and the City Hall area.
Mayor Inday said she hoped that the spirit of Christmas will live in the hearts of every Dabawenyo and their families, as the city celebrates the holiday season.
City Tourism Operations Office chief Gene Rose Tecson said that it is also better for people to remember the fun memories of their childhood days.
Tecson said this is what the Pasko Fiesta is all about.
“Gina-awhag nako ang tanan, bata man o tiguwang nga muapil, mutungha ug musalmot sa mga pasundayag ug kalihokan nga gi-andam alang sa pasko fiesta 2017. May you find one that will truly delight you and bring out the child in you,” Tecson said. CIO
