A WEEK-LONG trade fair featuring products from the different towns of Iloilo province opened on Monday at the capitol compound in time for the Dinagyang Festival, the biggest annual festival of the independent city of Iloilo. Provincial Administrator Suzette A. Mamon said they also wanted to offer activities to residents and guests through the provincial government’s own “Dagyang sa Kapitolyo” apart from the events lined up by the Iloilo Dinagyang Foundation. “Dagyang sa Kapitolyo is open for everybody. We see to it that if they visit the Capitol, there are activities prepared for them,” she said in a statement. Aside from the trade fair, local bands and artists will be performing at the coffee shops and bars in Casa Real, the old capitol building that has been declared as a National Historical Site. Artworks by local artists are also on display at Grand Ballroom. The Dinagyang Festival main events are held every fourth Sunday of January.
