The OPEC-Negros Jewellers joined in the highlights of Kabankalan City’s Udyakan Festival 2016 last August 2, 2016. This is the city’s gratifying celebration of its charter anniversary as it now reached 19 years into cityhood with the theme: “Getting stronger at 19…Looking for more development.”
The Udyakan Festival is a dance festival that reflects the playful and joyful spirits of Kabankalanons. The week-long festival also showcases Kabankalan’s indigenous products through an agro-industrial fair participated by its different barangays.
A civic parade, starting at the city’s public plaza, was held. Schools and various business establishments joined in the merry-making. The parade started at 9:00 AM. It passed through the different major roads of the city. The team excitedly gave various ML freebies like cellular phone pouches, hand towels, hand fans and candies to the spectators as they were eager to avail of these items. One thing that added to the excitement and fun of the team was the presence of the mobile van which played the hugely popular and captivating new M Lhuillier jingle.
The civic parade culminated at the city’s public plaza where the smiles and laughter of the Kabankalanons and guests, in full display, seemed to beckon everyone who wasn’t yet there to come experience the Udyakan Festival at its best!
