La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda has declared March 18, 2019 as a special non-working holiday for the celebration of the 38th Strawberry Festival.

The Benguet politiko explained that declaring March 18 a special non-working holiday will allow residents to participate in the celebration.

“There is a heightened public interest and participation in the various government-led and community supported events of the festival, thus, the need to declare March 18, 2019 as a special non-working holiday in the municipality,” he said.

Salda also lifted La Trinidad’s number coding scheme from March 18-22 to accommodate the influx of tourists during the festival.

He also ordered the redirection of traffic routes for the duration of the festival.
