Mayor Jerry P. Treรฑas commended the Iloilo Festivals Foundation, Inc. (IFFI) and all other stakeholders for the recently concluded 51st Iloilo-Guimaras Paraw Regatta Festival.

For the city mayor, this yearโ€™s celebration of the longest and biggest sailing race in Southeast Asia was filled with various activities and โ€œone of the most successful.โ€

“I congratulate the Iloilo Festivals Foundation, Inc. for holding one of the most successful Iloilo-Guimaras Paraw Regatta Festivals in its 51st year. We have been supportive of this event to showcase the Ilonggo’s ingenuity and abilities. I thank the organizers, the sailors, and our sponsors. The festival has attracted a lot of visitors and will do much to support the local economy,โ€ he said.
