Iloilo City Council wants alternative site for Jaro fair
The Association of Barangay Captains (ABC) Jaro district have been asked to look for an alternative site for this year’s ABC Jaro December Food and Festival Fair.
The Daily Guardian reported that ABC Jaro earlier asked the Iloilo City Council to pass a resolution allowing the group to hold the annual event inside Jaro plaza.
“The Committee on Tourism recommends to the Jaro ABC to look for a private open space where they can hold the fair, and refer the matter to the Executive Department,” Councilor Candice Tupas said in a report adopted unanimously by the Sangguniang Panlungsod.
In October, Mayor Jose Espinosa III ordered the removal of kiosks selling second-hand clothes in Jaro and Mandurriao plazas.
