DUMAGUETE CITY, Feb. 2 — The city government of Dumaguete through the City Tourism Office announced the return of “Tayada sa Plaza”, a cultural show held on weekends at the city’s Quezon Park.

The “Tayada sa Plaza” has been one of the attractions that Dumaguete, dubbed as the “City of Gentle People”' has to offer, according to City Tourism Officer Woodrow Maquiling, Jr.

For the past 10 years, the park has been the venue for Dumagueteños, particularly students coming from different schools, to showcase their talents and skills. Tayada sa Plaza is held every Sunday at the Quezon Park.

Since last October, the “Tayada” was temporarily halted for several weekends because the preparations for the annual charter day and fiesta celebration held the following month of November demanded the attention of everyone, Maquiling said.

However, on Sunday, Feb. 5, “Tayada sa Plaza” will have a grand return with the St. Louis School–Don Bosco as the performing school, Maquiling added.

A new feature of “Tayada” will be added this year, with the City Tourism Council contemplating on providing themes for every quarter of the year to be the bases of the schools’ performances. A livelier and merrier “Tayada” shall be anticipated by Dumagueteños, Maquiling said.

Tayada is a manifestation of the strong spirit of partnership between the private sector and the government.

The tourism council, then headed by its chair Glynda Descuatan, tried to collate all the efforts of schools in partnership with the city government. (PNA)
