Applications for Hermosa Fest lineup now open


Registration for activities under the Hermosa Festival 2018 calendar is now underway.

In preparation for the celebration of the Zamboanga Hermosa Festival this October, the special events team of the City Government is calling for applications for the following activities and competition: the Arco Competition, the Dance Sport competition, and the Streetdance competition.

The Inter-barangay Arco Competition is open to all barangays. Participating arcos must showcase the best attributes of the respective barangays, including products, culture, tourist spots, legends, and symbols. It must also feature the letterings – Viva Nuestra Señora La Virgen del Pilar, Vamos a Celebrar, and Bienvenidos a Zamboanga Hermosa Festival.

Only the first fifteen submitted entries with registration and complete requirements will be allowed to join the competition. Arco construction must be completed on September 22 for the final judging on September 23.

This year’s Dance Sport competition will have four categories – interschool elementary, interschool secondary, interschool tertiary, and the open category. The interschool categories will be for Zamboanga City participants only, while the open category will welcome interested participants from different cities and regions nationwide.

Only the first fifteen couples with registration and complete requirements will be allowed to join per category. The last day of registration will be on September 14.

One of the festival crowd-pleasers, the Zamboanga Hermosa Festival  Streetdance competition will bring to the streets to pay homage to the La Virgen del Pilar. Four categories will be opened for the competition – the Hermosa-based elementary, high school and college, and open category, and the regional open category. All categories under the Hermosa group will be for Zamboanga City participants, while the regional category is for participating groups from Region IX.

There will only be eight groups per category, and registration will be closed once category slots are filled.

Deadline for submission of registration and requirements will be on September 18.

Complete guidelines and details for all Hermosa activities can be accessed on the Festival’s Facebook page. Interested participants may also call 990-1356 for more information. (Jasmine Mohammadsali/PR)
