Community fireworks display slated Dec 31 in Melvin Jones
by PIO release

Officials are inviting residents and visitors to attend the city government-sponsored community fireworks display midnight of Dec. 31 at the Melvin Jones football grounds to welcome the New Year.

Councilor Elmer O. Datuin, chair of the city council committee on tourism, special events, parks and playgrounds, said this year’s community fireworks display is bigger and better.

Datuin said that for the past several years, the local government had been successful in the conduct of the community fireworks display at the Melvin Jones football grounds that is why city officials decided to make the fireworks display much bigger and better this year.

“We hope that there will be more people that will flock to the Melvin Jones grounds shortly before midnight on Dec. 31 to join us in welcoming the New Year through the community fireworks display. The attendance last year was really convincing that is why we hope that there will be more people who will join us this year,” Datuin said.

Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan urged concerned offices of the local government to study the possibility of transferring the venue of the community fireworks display at elevated areas in the city like in Quirino Hill and Dominican Hill among other areas, so residents who will not be able to go to the Melvin Jones football grounds to witness the community fireworks display in their homes, will still be able to watch the fireworks display.

He said that in the conduct of the community fireworks display at the Melvin Jones football field, only the residents in nearby barangays that can witness said activity.

Domogan also emphasized the need for the city council to enact pending proposals for the total ban on the sale, disposal, and manufacture of firecrackers and regulating the conduct of fireworks displays so that the local government will be able to the areas where the community fireworks display will be done during special occasions in the city.

He said the ordinance should also define safety measures that should be implemented by the concerned offices to guarantee the safety and security of those witnessing the conduct of the community fireworks display, as well as of the people in charge of lighting the fireworks.

Aside from the community fireworks display, the public will also witness various performances from different groups and individuals while waiting for the coming of the New Year to spice up the city-sponsored activity.
