Simple celebration of Tnalak fest underway in South Cotabato

Preparations are underway for this year’s  55th Foundation Anniversary and 22nd Tnalak Festival as the Executive Committee meeting holds its first meeting today to plan out activities for the much-awaited festival on July 18 this year.

Provincial Administrator Atty. Renette Bergado said the festival will be observed in a very simple way and events to be held should be those which are not considered as “crowd drawers”.

Unlike the previous staging of the festival which lasts for a week, this year’s celebration will be for three days only, to start from July 16-18, 2021.

All of these events will be conducted at the South Cotabato Gym and Cultural Center and will be available via live streaming at the official Facebook page of the province, the “Provincial Government of South Cotabato” and the “Land of the Dreamweavers”.

Initial events include Interfaith Thanksgiving celebration; Tnalak Throwback, SAOT South Cotabato;  Bugal Lokal, 1st a Tnalak Fashion Design;  Most Outstanding South Cotabatenos Awards; and fireworks display.

Bergado disclosed that strict health protocols will be observed as the province celebrates this year’s Tnalak fest.
