CABANATUAN CITY, Nueva Ecija– It’s a holiday in Nueva Ecija on Friday and the provincial government is giving Novo Ecijanos a treat of their lives — an unlimited lure for Pokemon Go.
Dubbed as the very first Pokemon Go Grand Lure Party, the event comes with free lures, charging stations, live band performances, games, raffles – as part of the celebration of 120th anniversary celebration of Unang Sigaw ng Nueva Ecija at 5 p.m. at the Benigno Aquino Freedom Park in this city.
The event is being conducted in cooperation with office of the governor and the Provincial Youth and Development Council (PYDC) and sponsored by a telecommunication company.
The event brought delight to some netizens.
“Nice event but please add police visibility in the area for safety of the players if possible everyday,” said Marius Castillo anticipating huge attendance of Pokemon Go crazed people.
Sept 2 was declared an official holiday in Nueva Ecija through Republic Act 7596.
Nueva Ecija was one of eight provinces that revolted against Spanish rule in 1896, earning a ray of sun in the Philippine flag.
Besides the Pokemon Grand Lure Party, other activities include coronation night of Binibining Nueva Ecija, recognition for outstanding youths and an agriculture summit at the Nueva Ecija Convention Center in Palayan City. PNA/northboundasia.com
