In a Friday press conference, Iloilo Governor Arthur Defensor Jr. said he did not anticipate the volume of people that come every night to see the lights display launched Monday, Dec. 2.

“But I guess now, there’s a much bigger space,” noted Defensor, referring to the P420 million redevelopment of the Capitol complex has been completed and also opened to the public earlier this week.

Among the rules are no bringing of food, no selling of food, and no smoking. If there is food, visitors must throw their trash only into garbage cans and nowhere else.

Guards will also conduct foot patrols to ensure these rules are being implemented.

Aside from the Iloilo Provincial Capitol, there are also other Christmas displays in Iloilo City – at plazas that have been lighted by the city government as well as school campuses and malls.
