Work for Iloilo Dinagyang 2014 Begins


The Iloilo Dinagyang Foundation Inc. (IDFI) officially launched on Wednesday the 46th Iloilo Dinagyang Festival celebration to be held from January 24 to 26 with the theme, "Bringing More Fun to the World."

The launching started after the Mass celebrated at the San Jose Parish Church, followed by the signing of memorandum of agreement between IDFI, represented by its president Ramon Cua Locsin, the Iloilo City government through Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog and the Parish Church led by Fr. Raymundo Edzel Alcayaga.

Iloilo City Tourism officer Benito Jimena said this early launching will help probable candidates to prepare earlier for the event and more time to invite many visitors to come in Iloilo for the annual festival.

Jimena said Iloilo Dinagyang has been known as the Best Tourism Event in the country and this will remain as the Ilonggo's pride.

To make the Dinagyang more convenient, the foundation will still follow the old set-up or the carousel type where the final performing area for competing tribes will be at the Freedom Grandstand.

As carousel type, performing tribes will simultaneously perform in each of the four judging areas Freedom Grandstand, Quezon-Ledesma Streets, Iloilo Provincial Capitol and Ma. Clara Street all within the city proper area, said Jimena.
