Brgy. Libertad officials all set for Kahimunan Festival 2012by Robert E. Roperos
BUTUAN CITY, Jan. 7 (PIA) -– Officials of Barangay Libertad here are already prepared for the conduct of the 2012 Kahimunan Festival on Sunday, January 15.
According to Libertad Punong Barangay Vincent Rizal Rosario in an interview over Bombo Radyo here, this year’s festival will only be featuring contingents from their barangays.
Rosario added because of the limited financial resources, as well as time constraints, the organizers and the barangay officials decided to feature the local contingents coming from their barangay.
However, the official said each contingent is allowed to hire musicians from the neighboring cities and provinces to ensure musical quality.
“Bisan og wala kadtong mga taga-laing lugar nga muapil, apan nindot guihapon and atong festival tungod kay gitugutan man ang matag contingent nga mu-hire og mga musicians sa nga silingang lugar dinhi sa dakbayan,” Rosario said.
(Despite of the absence of those contingents from other places, but still the festival will be colorful because the organizers can hire musicians from other cities and provinces.)
Today, the Mindanao Open Chess Tournament will be opened and the Talent Portion of Mutya Hong Libertad will be conducted this evening at the barangay’s covered court. (PIA-Caraga)
