Sta. Cruz Commemorates Sto. Niño Children’s Festival 2012


“While the Cebuanos celebrate the Feast of the Sto. Niño through the Sinulog Festival, the Ilonggos – Dinagyang Festival and the Aklanons – Ati-Atihan Festival, we Sta. Cruzinians, celebrate it through the Children’s Festival”.

-Mayor Teresita C. Valle


Every January of each year, Sta. Cruz, Ilocos Sur, through the initiative of the Immaculate Conception Parish, headed by Rev. Fr. Jerry Avisa, celebrates the Feast of the Sto. Niño through the Children’s Festival.

During this event, the gifts and talents of the Sta. Cruzinian children are showcased and offered to the Lord through a mass which precedes the day’s activities.

And so, last January 14, 2012, at the Sta. Cruz Cultural, Tourism and Trade Center, the Immaculate Conception Parish celebrated a mass in honor of the Sto. Niño. After which, a colorful parade of marching bands by the different participating elementary schools was witnessed and was then followed by a short program showcasing the children’s talents in the performing arts.
