Hinigaran, Negros Occidental
Part 5 of the Libotero Negros Occidental Heritage Series
Across the St. Mary Magdalene Church is the town plaza of Hinigaran.
Busts of Philippine heroes greet you at the Hinigaran Town Plaza. From L-R: Graciano Lopez-Jaena, Andres Bonifacio, Emilio Aguinaldo, national hero Jose Rizal, Jose Abad Santos, General Vicente Lim and Lt. Eduardo Baumann
While walking around the plaza, I noticed that there seemed to be a festive mood so I tried to look around.
Hinigaran was holding their Municipal Cultural Meet at their gym during my visit
The event was well-attended by the Hinigaranons, which actually made me feel glad as the local government unit has provided a venue for its constituents to appreciate and value culture and the arts. Nowadays, most people would rather be occupied by technology, computers and the internet, so here’s two thumbs up to the Hinigaran LGU!
Further into the town plaza is the Hinigaran Municipal Capitol
The identifying mark on the municipal building is the emblem of the Commonwealth of the Philippines which means that the structure was built within 1935-1946, when the Philippines was still a Commonwealth of the United States. Interesting!
I watched the Cultural Meet for a few minutes while enjoying an “ice drop”. It really felt great to be somehow immersed into the culture of the locals. At around 3:30pm, I finally left Hinigaran on a mini-bus bound northward.
