This weekend, as Iloilo City celebrates the Dinagyang Festival, Iloilo Business Park will be one of the top destinations for many night-long events that will make this year’s festivities more memorable.
Two days after their coronation, the winning Miss Iloilo Dinagyang 2017 and her court will make their first public appearance at the newly-opened Festive Walk Parade. It’s the city’s newest dining destination. At Richmonde Hotel, the Heineken EDM party will start at 7.
Meanwhile, a rocking live performance by Spongecola, one of the country’s biggest bands today will be held on January 21, from 7PM to 12MN. At 8PM of the same night also promises the “Glitters in the Sky” grand fireworks display to welcome the Festival Day.
Then from January 21-22, 6-11PM, the Iloilo Business Park showroom will be the venue for the “Loot Trunk Show”, a fashion event participated in by local fashion and interior designers.
“Dinagyang Festival is all about fun and excitement, an occasion that Ilonggos await annually. Here at Iloilo Business Park, we want to make sure that Ilonggos and visitors will indeed have the time of their lives during the season,” said Jen Palmares-Fong, vice president for sales and marketing, Iloilo Business Park.
But what is a Dinagyang Festival celebration without delectable food? With the new dining concepts in Iloilo Business Park, there are so much for you and your family and friends to feast on and experience. Whether you feel like listening to some live acoustic performances at Cable Car, satisfying your cravings for brunch favorites at Dova, or tasting some hearty and organic dishes at Farm to Table, you are welcome to enjoy the Dinagyang season at Iloilo Business Park.
But the options do not end there: with the opening of the 1.1-km Festive Walk Parade, the longest shopping and dining strip in Western Visayas, prepare to feast on more—the good old Ilonggo way, of course.
From native delicacies like barquillos and biscocho to seafood and traditional Ilonggo cuisines, Festive Walk Parade has delicious surprises for just about everybody.
Topping the list of must-visit restaurants in Festive Walk Parade is Griller’s Oyster House, one of Iloilo’s best seafood restaurants that became famous for its Baked Talaba. For special Ilonggo delicacies and other pasalubong buys, Festive Walk Parade is now home to Iloilo’s legendary Biscocho Haus and the city’s premiere pasalubong center Tinukib.
Dulgies, a haven for dessert lovers in Iloilo City, is also ready to fill one’s cravings for sweets with its famous homemade cakes and desserts. Coffee-lovers, meanwhile, can drop by 13th Street Espresso, the first roastery coffee shop in the city.
Aside from local restaurants, Festive Walk Parade will also be home to foreign dining brands serving a variety of international flavors. Among the first restaurants to arrive is Jip Bab, which serves traditional Korean cuisine.
