Pasko de Oro, this year’s Christmas initiative of the Cagayan de Oro Tourism Council – will be more interesting with the inclusion of the Dress up your Motorela competition dubbed as PaskoRela.
Any individual, corporate group, or organization may adopt a motorela to join the contest of which Christmas symbols should be used to deck the motorela and preferably with Christmas lights installed to it.
The motorela as an entry will still be used by their operators or drivers on daily basis during the contest period with the decors attached to it. The Tourism Council believes that by parading these motorelas around the city during the Christmas season, will add more Christmas feel around the City.
Cash prizes will be given away to winning entries. Forms are available at the City Tourism Office with detailed guidelines.
The Pasko de Oro series of events will be launched very soon to include Bangga sa Daygon for Elementary and Open Category, lantern parade and Christmas Bazaar at Gaston Park.
Plans are underway to light up the Ysalina Bridge, City Hall and Gaston park all at once on the first week of December.
