Strawberry Festival organizer sticks w/ traditional activities
by Rimaliza A. Opiña

If organizers of other festivals in the Cordillera are constantly innovating their event to introduce something new in every staging, differentiate it with La Trinidad’s Strawberry Festival, which chooses to retain its institutionalized events.

In a press conference on Jan. 29, La Trinidad Tourism Officer Valred Olsim said the Strawberry Festival executive committee only introduce a few changes but stick with events associated with the event.

The Strawberry Festival has 20 institutionalized events.

“We cannot keep on changing. There are events that also deserve to be preserved,” Olsim said.

Olsim acknowledged that while they hear comments about some activities that have already been staged, they decided to stick to these because audiences also vary.

“There are other audiences. We want other people to see our events with new perspective,” Olsim said.

As complement to Baguio City’s Panagbenga, La Trinidad is set to launch the Strawberry Festival on March 4, and prior to biggest events of the flower festival, the municipal government will also stage the third Coffee Festival from Feb. 7 to 10.

Main activities for the Strawberry Festival are the strawberry lane from March 4 to 30 at the municipal park, art and mural art lane on March 6 to 7 at the municipal park, jobs fair, search for biggest and sweetest strawberry, flower arrangement all on March 8, fun run on March 9, mass wedding on March 13, battle of the bands on March 15, dog show on March 16, dongba ni kabajo on March 16 and 17, acoustic band competition on March 17, the main program on March 18, street dancing, drum and lyre float parade, showcase of the giant strawberry cake, search for Mr. and Ms. La Trinidad, all on March 23, concert at the park on March 9 and 17, wine fair on March 29, and closing on barangay night on March 29.
