Gee, Tacloban City will be celebrating its annual fiesta in honor of its patron saint,Sto. Niño in June 30. Customarily, a Pintados Festival which Tacloban is known for is used to be held on June 29. Since 1986, this festival has been celebrated every year, but this year they are moving it earlier to the 27th of June, 2 days earlier than the usual date which has been observed. The Pintados Foundation deem it proper to give way to the new Pasangyaw Festival which will be participated in reportedly by various festivals coming from the various cities of the country.
Uhm, i smell some confusion in here. It is public knowledge that there exist some political bickerings and balderdash between and among the political leaders of Tacloban and Leyte which may have led to the giving in of Pintados to Pasangyaw. Anyway, whatever it is, i just hope that the people will not be confused of the real essence of this fiesta which is to honor the patron saint of Tacloban.
