Senior Tourism Operations Officer Myla Mae B. Abellana, head of the lead agency, said the event, dubbed Pasko sa Sidlakang Ko, aims to involve a unified Provincial participation by local government units and schools to instill a wider sense of ownership of the celebration among all Oriental Negrenses.

Abellana said Gov. Agustin R. Perdices will light up the Negros Oriental Christmas tree on the front lawn of Sidlakang Negros Village. A festive package of competitions including Minus-One singing of Christmas carols, K-pop and Dancesport, Parade of Bands, Parol and Sayawit; as well as non-competitive activities such as cocktails, a fashion show, and food fairs in the decorated LGU booths of the Village will be held in the succeeding days, Abellana added.

She also announced that in the production of Pasko sa Sidlakan Ko, the Provincial Tourism Office is in the partnership with the Province Vice-Governor’s Office headed by Roel R. Degamo, the Negros Oriental Tourism Council chaired by Dr. Nichol R. Elman, the Sidlakang Negros Village Review & Appraisal Commission headed by Esperato Dicen and Rodrigo Lagahit, and the Negors Oriental Sports & Cultural Facilities Board of Management headed by Glynda T. Descuatan. The activities are open to the public.
