The City Government of Naga released on Friday (July 15) the designated dates of major events for the celebration of the Peñafrancia fiesta in September, this year. 

Mayor Nelson Legacion expressed optimism that the civic and religious activities for this year’s 312th devotion to the Our Lady of Peñafrancia will push through and that there will be no situation that will compel the LGU and the Archdiocese of Caceres to cancel the biggest Marian festival in Southeast Asia.

The calendar of events for this year’s regional fiesta which is traditionally being held in the city every year:

In a related development, City Administrator Elmer Baldemoro said on Wednesday that the City Development Council (CDC) has already passed a resolution approving the inclusion of the P8-M Peñafrancia Festival Support Fund in the city government’s Annual Investment Plan (AIP).

The inclusion of the proposed P8-M Peñafrancia Festival Support Fund in AIP will allow the city council on Tuesday (July 26) to re-deliberate on and pass the necessary legislation for the release of the fund.
