Sparks flew and lights splattered over the dark-lit sky with the array of fireworks bursting on this year’s culmination of Inugyunay Festival, December 23, 2021.
In sync with the lyrics and rhythm of the song “Fireworks”, the pyrotechnics flashed up above a sea of people watching from the City Hall Ground and even lasted for at least 15 minutes for them to enjoy.
Before the spectacle ensued, a live Christian Worship was initiated by City Councilor David Salazar along with a choir and band.
Succeeding this religious undertaking, a group of singers from General Santos performed to usher at the beginning of the festivity that night.
City Mayor Lino O. Montilla and City Vice Mayor Lalaine J. Montilla, as well as the other members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod of Tacurong, articulated their season’s greetings via recorded messages, which were played leading up to the fireworks show.
Mayor Lino and Vice Mayor Lalaine echoed the same sentiments that because of the collaborative efforts of the people of Tacurong, this year’s celebration has come to fruition. Along with this thought, both of them also commended and thanked the people for such obedience to the health protocols – a feat that entailed the downward trend of the COVID-19 cases in Tacurong.
This year’s exhibit marks a comeback for the Grand Fireworks Display in the city after being missing from the Inugyunay merry-making last year due to the onslaught of the COVID-19 crisis.
Although the festival has been concluded for this December, people can still visit and wander around the City Hall Ground to marvel in the starry and glimmering Christmas adornments the city government has prepared. (DECostas, LGU-TacInformation)
