Candidates of the Miss Universe 2016 will be this highly-urbanized city’s newest ambassadresses once they set foot here for their photo shoot.

City tourism officer Junel Ann P. Divinagracia, on Monday, said that they are just waiting for the team of Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo to arrive in Iloilo City within this month to talk about the details of the photo shoot.

Nonetheless, she said that the candidates “will be our ambassadress when they see and have a memorable stay in Iloilo City.”

Initially, among the venues considered for the photo shoot are the Iloilo River Esplanade, Molo Church, Iloilo Convention Center (ICC) and the Nelly’s Garden.

She added that such kind of event goes well for the tourism sector, especially for the accommodation, restaurants and souvenir business.

Meanwhile, all is set for the switch-on of the close to 50-feet high Christmas tree that stands tall at the Plazoleta Gay area in the City Proper district here at around 5:30 p.m. Monday.

The Christmas tree was mounted in collaboration with the Iloilo Dinagyang Foundation Inc (IDFI), Iloilo School of Arts and Trade University (ISAT-U) and the JCI-Iloilo.

The switch-on is simultaneous with the lighting of some 637 street lanterns mounted along city streets. The lanterns were donations from the private sector.

Divinagracia said that they will complement the various light festivals launched by various universities and colleges as well as at the compound of the Iloilo Provincial Capitol. [via PNA]
