Mayoyao postpones town fiesta
by Farrah B. Banawan

The Municipality of Mayoyao, Ifugao has suspended its 2019 town fiesta dubbed Igkhumtad ad Majawjaw pursuant to Resolution 17 and Executive Order 5, s. 2019.

As per verification by the committee on laws, rules, and amendment together with the committee on ways and means, the suspension of the town fiesta is due to the diversion of attention of the barangays to the upcoming midterm elections on May 13.

Mayoyao Mayor Ronie H. Lumayna signed the executive order suspending the town fiesta on March 4.

The committee on finance, budget, and appropriation verified that most barangays have no appropriated funds for the town fiesta and that the 2019 annual budget of the municipality is not enough to finance the activities and other expenses.

It was also observed that due to climate change and the drought that started last February, residents have no time to prepare for the activities as they will be busy maintaining the water systems to provide adequate water supply in the rice fields.

Ordinance 8, s. 2016 or Igkhumtad ad Majawjaw amending Ordinance 37, s. 2003, provides that the event is a three-day festival to display Mayoyao’s cultural and traditional practices through ethnic games, songs, and other activities developed by their ancestors, with the participation of all barangay officials, agencies, institutions, the local government unit, and constituents.

The ordinance also provides that the municipal government shall allocate not more than P500,000 to defray the expenses for the conduct of various activities for the festival.

The Igkhumtad ad Majawjaw is usually held every fourth Wednesday of April up to the fourth Friday of the same month except during election year.
