ROXAS CITY—There will be no fiesta queen of Sinadya sa Halaran but she will have a role in the December 7 religious activities of the festival.

Msgr. Victor Bendico, festival director, said in a press conference last November 5, that the fiesta queen will now be a muse who will stand at the center of the bridge near the Immaculate Conceptcion Metropolitan Cathedral (ICMC) and crown the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary once it is elevated from the pagoda, Bendico said.

Like past fiesta queens, the muse will still have her place of honor and be escorted.

Bendico said that he suggested to turn the fiesta queen into a muse to "put the spotlight" on the Blessed Virgin Mary.


Spearheaded by the Archdiocese of Capiz, in collaboration with the provincial and Roxas City government, The Sinadya sa Halaran, a yearly festival celebrating the Feast of the Immaculate Conceptcion, will be held from December 5-8.

In past years, Bendico said, civic activities have "submerged" the religious aspect of the festival.

The fluvial procession of the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary will be on December 7 at 7 p.m., this will be followed by a fireworks display at 8 p.m., and the Marcha de la Immaculada from the foot of the bridge, to the front portion of the Provincial Capitol, encircling the Rizal Monument, to the ICMC at 8:30 p.m.

Vespers Mass will be held in front of the ICMC on December 7 at 4:30 p.m.

Joel Benedict Bernas of the Capiz Lions Club said that the fiesta queen represents the city whereas the Mutya sang Sinadya sa Halaran serves as an ambassadress of Capiz.

The Mutya sang Sinadya sa Halaran is spearheaded by the Capiz Lions Club.

Capiz Police Director Ulysses Caton said that cops are ready to maintain security and crowd control during the festival. There will also be police assistance centers in the public plaza, Roxas Avenue, San Roque Street, Rizal Street, and Arnaldo Boulevard. Checkpoints will be placed at the entrance and exit points of Roxas City.
