GRAND BENGUET DAY CELEBRATION — The twin celebration of the 122nd foundation day of Benguet and Adivay Festival was marked with gongs and cheers as people from the 13 municipalities converged at the Benguet Sports Center in  Wangal, La Trinidad on Nov. 23 to share their common good. Ranking officials led by Gov. Melchor Diclas, Vice Gov. Ericson Felipe, and Rep. Eric Yap danced the “tayaw” prior to the butchering of pigs, which signaled the start of the celebration themed, “A people’s festival of culture, nature, and the future”. — Ofelia Empian
