Murcia, Negros Occidental, to celebrate annual harvest festival
The town of Murcia in Negros Occidental, looks forward to a grand celebration on November 29, as it marks its 20th year of annual harvest festival.
“Tinabu-ay sa Murcia” is a harvest festival in honor of the town’s patron saint, the highly revered Immaculate Conception, Sun Star reported.
The town’s festival dance has remained on the limelight, with its back to back win in the highly-contested Festival Dance Competition during the annual “Panaad sa Negros Festival.”
This is also a time where Murcia showcases its hospitality, where goers can visit households to join the feasts.
Apart from the dance and music festivities November 29 will also signal the opening of “institutional” events like the annual Farmers and Agriculture Fair, the Light a Tree program of the Municipal Tourism Office, a wide selection of local gastronomic delights in a Food Fair, among others, Sun Star said.
