They say that one of the most exciting Chinese New Year Celebrations in the country can be found here in Iloilo City. With the overwhelming support of the Chinese community who have been part of the city’s long history, this grandiose celebration truly manifests their being part of the Iloilo community even before the colonization periods that makes the city what it is now most especially when we speak of business.
The whole celebration started with a parade from Bonifacio Drive near Museo Iloilo towards the city’s old business district along Iznart, J.M. Basa and Aldeguer sts. and back to the other half of Iznart st. towards the Chinese-Filipino Friendship Arch where a colorful and grand stage stood with designs inspired from the Great Walls of China. Truly Amazing!
