DUMAGUETE CITY, Feb. 5 (PIA) --- Dumaguete City’s most popular cultural show returns to the stage today, Feb. 5, after nearly three months of absence from the local limelight.
Dumaguete City Tourism Officer Woodrow Maquiling, Jr. earlier announced the return of Tayada sa Plaza, a weekly cultural event that has been staged every Sunday afternoon at the Quezon Park for the past ten years.
Tayada sa Plaza showcases the numerous talents and skills of students coming from the schools in Dumaguete City.
However, the show failed to make its weekly appearance starting October last year due to the city government’s preparations for the annual charter day and fiesta celebration held every November.
“The preparations demanded the attention of everyone so the Tayada was not staged,” said Maquiling.
The tourism officer assured that the show will make its grant return today with the St. Louis School-Don Bosco as the performing school.
Maquiling, who was just appointed as the new tourism officer this year, said the show will come back with a new twist to it, making it livelier and merrier.
“This time, the City Tourism Council is thinking of providing themes for every quarter of the year which will be the basis of the schools’ performances.
The Dumaguete City Information Office said the show is “a manifestation of the strong spirit of partnership between the private sector and the government” while providing a venue for local youths to harness their skills. (RMN/PIA Negros Oriental)
