DOT-IX declares Hudyaka ZaNorte festival 1 in Zamboanga Peninsula

Dipolog City (9 June) -- With the overwhelming success of the recently held "Hudyaka ZaNorte" festival in celebration of the 57th founding anniversary of Zamboanga del Norte, director James Elridge Adraincem of the Department of Tourism (DOT) - IX considered it the best in the region.

"It's the big pride of the ZamPen region," said Adraincem calling it the best vehicle for promoting tourism industry in the area.

He also disclosed that the DOT regional office is now working out to include 'Hudyaka' in the infomercials of DOT.

Although some areas in the region are faced with peace and order problems, the tourism director believed that "hudyaka' could still invite tourist and visitors to Zamboanga del Norte.

The "Hudyaka" festival was held this year in Dapitan City starting May 29-June 7 with President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as guest of honor on the opening day.

Artistic booths displaying a variety of farm and marine products were set up by the different towns at the "Hudyaka" site in Dapitan City.

During her recent visit to Dapitan, President Arroyo also inaugurated the Fantasy Land, a theme park owned by former congressman Romeo G. Jalosjos. It is the biggest theme park outside Metro Manila with 35 rides comparable to that of the Disneyland. (PF/PIA-ZN) [top]
