Ormoc politikos lead celebration of 2nd Piña Festival
Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez and Leyte 4th District Representative Lucy Torres-Gomez recently led the city’s celebration of the second Piña Festival.
The Piña Festival celebrates Ormoc’s bountiful harvest of pineapple.
The Ormoc politiko said the festival is the residents’ way of giving thanks.
But Gomez said the Piña Festival not only aims to promote the city’s top produce.
“The Piña Festival also seeks to promote not only Ormoc’s very own sweet queen pineapple, but also its people’s strong personality that overcomes challenges and obstacles they faced from personal problem to calamities and disasters,” Gomez said.
