Considering the drop of Tourist rate in Dumaguete City and Negros Oriental due to the recent hostage crisis, the tourism office hopes to get in touch with everyone to get a head start with the Buglasan Festival to bring back the tourists.

In lieu with this year’s theme Tourism and Biodiversity, the activities will concentrate on environmental awareness. “Biodiversity is really important in tourism, a clean environment is very essential because why would tourists go if your environment is dead? It’s very important and essential to maintain the tourism value of the place, so if we have this value people both local and foreign will visit.” Woodrow Maquiling Jr, Tourism Officer 1.

The week-long celebration started on Sept. 12, kicking off with an IndiFashion Cocktail in which student designers create apparels made of indigenous materials. These outfits will then be modelled by students and teachers.

The celebration then ended on Sept. 18 with a Talents Showcase from the Asian College of Science and Technology.

Participating schools in the week-long celebration are Foundation University, Negros Oriental State University, Colegio de Sta. Catalina de Alejandria, Silliman University, St. Paul University and Asian College of Science & Technology.

Also this month, Dumaguete City has its own set of activities to coincide with the celebration. This will happen from Sept. 26. Most of the events will take place at the Sidlakang Negros Village. (Jeahan Virda B. De Barras and Ramon L. Vilar III)
