Locally known as “sulô,” the 25-meter high torch tower is a first in Northern Mindanao, Villanueva Mayor Jenny Uy said in an interview.

“Everything is set for the formal switch-on of the 25-meter high landmark torch tower at the Municipal Plaza to officially start the town’s Christmas festivities,” Uy said.

Uy said before the scheduled lighting up of the torch, the local government made a series of preliminary testing of the lighting fixtures to assure that Sunday’s switch-on ceremony would be hitch-free.

The lighting of the torch will also be the start of “Paskolandia 2019,” a competition of each village, and school, in the town through Christmas decoration makeover, and various musical performances.

Villanueva, located in the eastern part of the province, is an Industrial town that houses the second biggest Coca-Cola plant in the country, two power plants, and the oldest sintered ore manufacturing plant in the country. (PNA)
