Manila gears up for feast of Sto. Niño


    THREE busy roads at the Divisoria area – Recto, Ylaya-Tondo and Candelaria – will be closed from Jan. 17 to 19 for the annual Feast of the Sto. Niño.

    Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso said the roads will be used to conduct activities related to the celebration.

    “Vendors will not be allowed to sell along those three identified roads for three days,” he said, adding they will be used to conducting activities related to the celebration.

    “This will enable our men to clean the said areas,” he said, adding they expect local visitors to witness or join the celebration.

    He called for the cooperation of the public for this significant religious annual activity.

    He advised drivers and operators of public transportations, including private vehicles, to take alternate routes. – Noel Talacay
