GOVERNOR Susan Yap led the lighting of the Belen [Jesus Christ Nativity] and the giant Christmas Tree at the Maria Cristina Park, evening of November 23 with Vice Governor Carlito “Casada” David, Board Members Joy Gilbert Lamorena, Tonyboy Cervantes, Joji David and Dan Asiaten and Victoria Mayor and second district congressional candidate Christian Yap at the helm.
Thousands of Tarlaqueños likewise gathered to witness the lighting that also feature a night bazaar at the Rotary Lane.
In Yap’s message, she reminded all those who would visit the park to see the belen and the Christmas tree to always observe minimum health protocols.
“Ang gusto natin sa panahon ng pasko masaya naman itong taon na ito. Sobrang nag-enjoy ako sa Christmas tree at Belen lighting natin,” Yap said adding that, “Kahit may face-mask man, kitang-kita ang tuwa sa mga mata ng mga pumunta para masilayan ang lighting activity. Buhay na buhay ang Paskong Pilipino!”
Board Member candidates Topey delos Reyes and Harmes Sembrano, capitol department heads and employees also attended the lighting.
