Instead of a province-wide celebration, the Nueva Vizcaya provincial government held a lunchtime “salu-salo” in its offices for the 181st Founding Anniversary and 12th Grand Ammungan Festival.
This year’s twin celebration has been cancelled due to the coronavirus disease (COVID19) pandemic.
Nueva Vizcaya Governor Carlos Padilla said that salu-salo is the provincial government’s way of having a simple celebration.
“This will be done as our way of simple celebration, subject to social distancing among our skeletal workforce employees. We also appreciate the support and cooperation of our offices during the planning stages of our festival,” he said.
“The significance of our beloved province’s 181st founding anniversary shall be meaningfully remembered and cherished in these most trying times,” Padilla added.
