Iligan City — City mayor Celso Regencia thanked the uniformed men, the people, and guests for a successful fiesta celebration in a speech yesterday at city hall.

This was echoed by city vice mayor Jemar Vera Cruz who also expressed his gratitude to every one who made the city’s fiesta celebration safe and secure.

“(Every one deserves to be congratulated,” the vice mayor said.

The city fiesta, which features the Diyandi Festival, is a month-long celebration. It lines up various activities, both religious and also to boost tourism.

This year events for the month-long celebration include: Processions of St. Michael, the Archangel, the city’s patron saint, civic, and military parade, Diyandi Street Dancing, the coronation of Miss Iligan, Silent Drill Competition, Pasundayag sa Ludabi, and shows involving the city’s senior citizens.

The fiesta celebration, however, is far from over. It extends up to the first week of October, where the statue of St. Michael is returned to the altar at the cathedral.

The mayor also extended his gratitude to the chair of the Executive Management Board, city councior Sorilie Bacsarpa.

Curfew during the fiesta season though was still observed because of the martial law in Mindanao and also because of the still lingering battle in nearby Marawi City.
