By JMD Abangan

Carmen, Davao del Norte (16 June) -- Groomed to become a city by year 2020, Carmen town this year is staging a weeklong multifaceted events and activities to celebrate its 41st Araw ng Carmen.

Socio-economic activities such as skills and livelihood training, jobs fair and mobile passporting along with sports, religious and cultural events enliven the celebration which runs since June 11 and will end on June 18.

Each day is made marked with events such as competitions on band, pop singing, cheer dance and hip-hop, drum and bugle, boxing and variety show.

The festive celebration is unfolding as Carmen Municipal Mayor Marcelino Perandos hopes that the town will turn into a city by year 2020.

"Mas mabuti na ang may pangarap. Libre naman ang mangarap," Perandos said in an interviews.

Perandos was looking at the possibility that there would become a Metro Davao in which Carmen can also be a part of.

"(This) Metro Davao would be composed of cities. There would be cities of Davao , Panabo, Carmen and Tagum. That would be a very good place in this part of Mindanao," he said. (PIA XI) [top]
