Palawan Governor Jose Alvarez said Saturday that the provincial government will not be holding the “Baragatan” festival this year, citing lack of time for planning and preparation.

The annual month-long celebration would have marked the 117th Founding Anniversary of the Civil Government of the province.

“Wala muna tayong Baragatan kasi medyo [may] hangover pa ang mga tao sa eleksyon. Next year na lang,” Governor Alvarez said.

Baragatan is a Cuyunon term that means “to converge” to celebrate the occasion through the holding of an agro-trade fair, cultural presentations, arts and photo exhibits, float parade, street dancing, food fair, and other activities.

In 2016, there was also no Baragatan because of the elections.

“Hindi na muna, fix na ‘yon. Hindi na kasi na-plano ‘yan dahil busy ang lahat. Late na rin kung ngayon pa lang magpa-plano,” Alvarez said.
