Sarangani opens 1st ‘Paskuhan sa Kapitolyo’

ALABEL, Sarangani -- The Provincial Local Government Unit of Sarangani, headed by Governor Rogelio D. Pacquiao, launched the first ‘Paskuhan sa Kapitolyo’ with its theme “Sa Sarangani, Randam ang Diwa ng Pasko,” on December 14, 2022 at the Sarangani Provincial Capitol ground.

Provincial Capitol employees and the locals of the province witnessed the ceremonial lighting of the Capitol building and a giant Christmas tree, together with the grand fireworks display.

Gov. Pacquiao said the celebration is the "first in 30 years."

"Wala ka-celebrate og ani ang Sarangani for the last 30 years maong daghan kaayong salamat sa inyong suporta, dili lang ni tungod sa mga leaders kundi tungod pud sa inyoha," said Pacquiao.

"Deserve og ani ang mga Sarangan, di masukat og kwarta ang inyong kalipay, og ang inyong kalipay mao say among kalipay," he added.

Gov. Pacquiao also reminded the spectators, "di nato kalimtan ang true essence sa Christmas celebration na may kalipay sa atong kasing-kasing og pag-ampo diha sa Ginoo."

Gov. Pacquiao said the event will be a month-long Christmas activity that will feature a nightly light display of the Capitol compound and a bazaar hosted by some local concessionaires in the province.

The Capitol compound is now filled with Christmas decorations, such as lanterns, a Christmas tunnel, and a Christmas village where individuals can take photos.

A carnival is also expected to be installed on the Capitol grounds where locals can enjoy during the holiday season.

The Capitol will be open to the public every day until 11 pm, which will last until the second week of January 2023.

The event was supported by the Sarangani Provincial Tourism Council, Inc., headed by Jobelle Pacquiao, to give the Sarangans a unique “feel” of Christmas celebration.

The launching and the ceremonial lighting were made possible through the support of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, headed by Vice Governor Elmer De Peralta, and all the board members. (Genory Vanz Alfasain/VOTY)
