0 432

Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas appealed to the public to make this year’s Dinagyang Festival trash-free.

Revelers are encouraged to observe proper waste disposal “because it is not someone else’s responsibility to pick up your litter,” said Treñas.

“As your Local Chief Executive, together with the Iloilo Festivals Foundation, Inc., we will do our best to give you the kind of fun and festival you deserve. But I hope you will also help us in keeping our city clean,” the city mayor said. (

Keeping the city clean during Dinagyang, he added, is part of the city government’s desire to “level up” the quality of the celebration.

Dinagyang is the Hiligaynon word for revelry or merrymaking.
