THE City Government of Iloilo has incorporated several sports events in its month-long 76th Charter Day celebration which will start on Sunday, August 25, 2013.
Sports events also highlight the weeklong premier event, the Iloilo Paraw Regatta Festival held every second week of February every year.
The sports events include beach volleyball, fun run, taekwondo, chess, archery, swimming, sailboat race, and slalom race.
Also included are sports tourism events such as lawn tennis, table tennis, night run, football, dragon boat competition, arnis and dance sports.
City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog said his administration is fully supporting the different sports events as these will encourage the young people to be physically fit through sports and evade nefarious activities such as drug and smoking.
