Buglasan Festival 2017 Finally Over!

Buglasan Festival 2017 has finally concluded last night with a few more programs including a small program at the Capitol Stage at Freedom Park and the participation of more or less seven municipality and city booths.

Temporary Lead from Macias

Governor Roel Degamo is suspended from his position for a number of three months (90 days). He will be expected to return by the end of January 2018. With the temporary suspension of Negros Oriental Governor Roel Degamo, Vice Governor Edward Mark Macias has acted accordingly to the responsibilities.

His first move was extending Buglasan Festival from October 22 up 27, 2017 (5 more days of fun!). With the recent inconvenient rainy weather, a number of events were forced to be delayed, reschedule, relocated and some even cancelled. To make up for the missed festivity, Vice Governor Macias extended Buglasan 2017.
