CABARROGUIS, Quirino, Sept. 4 — The Quirinians are now anticipating the coming of Sec. Manuel “Mar” A. Roxas III of the Department of the Interior Government (DILG) to the province to grace the celebration the 42nd Araw ng Quirino on September 6-10, 2013.
In a press conference, Gov. Junie Cua has expressed optimism that Sec. Roxas will come for as long as he will not have urgent call from the President.
“But if the Secretary can’t make it, maybe he will send his undersecretary or any official from the DILG to our celebration,” he said.
Sec. Roxas will serve as guest of honor and speaker during the anniversary program on September 10 to be held at the newly renovated VIP grandstand here.
The Quirinians are also expecting for the arrival of various festivals in the province such as Tuguegarao City’s Pavvurulun festival; Cauayan City Cultural Troupe and Nueva Vizcaya’s Ammungan festival for a streetdancing showdown with the Panagdadapun festival also on September 10.
“As usual we shall also feature the motocross event which has become a family event in the province. Families come with their packed lunch and they eat there together as they enjoy the motocross,” Cua said.
Cua said these are part of the province’s desire to become as motocross and streetdancing capital.
Meanwhile, Edwin Antonio, chairman of the photo making contest has reminded all those who intend to join the photography contest to register so that they will be able to join the contest which will be conducted simultaneously with the motocross event on September 7 and 8 and the streetdancing showdown on September 10.
The Battle of the Bands will also be held in the afternoon of September 10 at the Capitol Oval to be followed by the concert of Parokya ni Edgar. (TCB)
