The highly anticipated re-launch of the Panaad Festival has been reset, Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson said yesterday, February 13.
The launch of the Panaad Festival, which was scheduled to take place last Monday, has been postponed due to concerns over the festival’s music and logo. Lacson explained that they were not satisfied with the festival music and logo that were previously introduced.
The Capitol has decided to seek the help of netizens in creating a new logo and festival music. The deadline for the submission of entries was yesterday afternoon, according to Charina Magallanes Tan, the executive assistant to the governor.
The festival’s logo and music are an important part of the event, as they help to promote and build excitement around the celebration.
In the meantime, preparations for the festival are still underway, and organizers are looking forward to welcoming visitors come April 17-23.
Lacson said they are eyeing to formally launch the festival either last week of this month or by first week of March.
The Panaad Festival is an annual event held in Bacolod City, showcasing the rich heritage of the Negros region through various cultural performances, exhibits, and other activities. It draws thousands of visitors every year from different parts of the country and beyond.
