Expect rains this week in in the City of Smiles.

Rain showers are in the forecast this week in Bacolod. This means major roads in the City of Smiles will be slippery and prone to traffic congestion. A master traffic plan is also set to be discussed to minimize the traffic as the city prepares to legislate another festival called Bacolod Festival of Lights. Meanwhile, a three-month fishing ban will also start this month.

Weather Advisory: Rain showers for Bacolod

There will be showers predominantly around Bacolod City. The downpour is expected on November 12 to 15. If you’re planning to hit the sugar beaches in South Negros or hike in the mountain ranges of North Negros, it is recommended to reschedule. According to Accuweather, the minimum temperature will be at 24 °C, while the maximum temperature will be at 34 °C. [1]

Traffic News: Traffic master plan for Bacolod City to be discussed

Fifteen traffic experts from Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) will study the traffic situation in Bacolod City from December 2 to 15. The city government asked the assistance of Danilo Lim and his team to develop a traffic master plan, and make recommendations on how it can be improved. The traffic master plan will then be discussed with City Mayor Evelio Leonardia for his approval. A traffic master plan could cost millions but the MMDA is assisting the city for free. This is great news for motorists and commuters who are experiencing traffic in day to day basis. [2]


Travel Update

Three-month fishing ban starts this month

The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in Western Visayas is set to implement the three-month fishing ban starting on November 15. The purpose of the ban is to allow the spawning of sardines, herrings, and mackerels once more in the Visayan Sea. The fishing ban contributes to the protection and conservation of the country’s marine resources since The Visayan Sea is one of the centers of marine biodiversity in Visayas. The fishing ban will last until February 2019.

Festival of Lights, a proposed festival, 2 months after Masskara

Bacolod councilor Em Ang wanted to create another annual celebration in Bacolod City. The festivity is envisioned as the Bacolod Festival of Lights, and is eyed to be held less than two months after the world-famous Masskara Festival last October. The celebration is inspired from the parade that STI-West Negros University has been doing for 22 years now. This is great news for tourists since there are now emerging tourism festivals after Masskara. The said festival is eyed to be institutionalized this month and hopefully will be celebrated Christmastime next year.
