Governor Perdices assigned the committee to design new and more exciting activities in the village as he received reports that some LGU booths are used only as lodging or sleeping quarters by students from other municipalities.

Of the 26 LGU booths in the village including the Siquijor, so far only 6 booths of Tanjay City , Sibulan, Zamboanguita, Dumaguete City , Tayasan, and Manjuyod are operating for the purpose or displaying its own products.

As we recall LGU booths were built under the administration of the late Gov. Emilio Macias intended to be self-generating income facilities for the respective LGUs while promoting all year-round the province’s tourism, culture and arts.

The Provincial Government has established the Sidlakang Negros Village , a permanent place for the different events and festivals and for the purpose of attracting more tourists to come and visit.

In a meeting with the Negros Oriental Tourism Council, Governor Perdices appointed General Manager Esperato Dicen of the Dumaguete City Water District to head the committee along with Provincial Director Javier Fortunato of Department of Trade & Industry, and Ed Du of Steds as members.

The committee is expected to make most of the village as a center of an activity that can sustain and profitable all year-round not only during the Buglasan Festival celebration in October.

In the same conference, NOTC Chair Dr. Nichol Elman briefed the Governor along with the new members of the tourism council, Provincial Administrator Paulino Honculada and Rodrigo Lagahit on the continuing preparation of activities for the Buglasan Festival celebration.

Dr. Elman cited to the Governor some new major events added for this year’s celebration such as the Negros Oriental Service Award, Pista sa Nayon, Kasikas sa Kalye, among others.

This year’s Buglasan Festival is expected to be more significant as Dumaguete City will host the 3,000 athletes for Unigames on the same schedule of the celebration. (PIA/JCT)
