Santa Rosa stages 17th ‘Sikhayan’


SANTA ROSA CITY, LAGUNA: The 17th Sikhayan Festival was staged here recently celebrating the Rosenians’ (a term for Santa Rosa people) spirit of enterprise that fueled the city’s economic growth through the decades. Mayor Arlene Arcillas explained “Sikhayan” is a contraction of Filipino words sikhay which means diligence and “kabuhayan” for livelihood, celebrated since 2000. This year’s festivities were highlighted by a parade, street dance competition and bazaar to showcase the Rosenians’ ingenuity, craftsmanship and colorful products under the theme “Sulong Kaunlaran! Hatid ng mga Sikhayan ng mga Barangay.”
