Cebu Daily News - - COM­MU­NITY - /PR

Cebu City Mayor To­mas Os­meña ap­proved last May 11 the clo­sure of a few down­town area streets for the Gabii sa Ka­bilin on May 26.

This means that from 6 p.m. un­til mid­night that day, the roads would not be avail­able to motorists, as the pub­lic would be us­ing them in vis­it­ing down­town mu­se­ums and other her­itage sites.

As ad­vised, Lopez Jaena Street, Mabini Street, P. Bur­gos Street from the cor­ner of V. Gul­las Street to the cor­ner of M. C. Bri­ones Street, and the por­tion of Colon Street from the cor­ner of Jakos­alem Street to Mabini Street, would be closed for this once-a-year event.

Among other con­di­tions, the mayor said the use of loud­speak­ers and other de­vices should be con­trolled so that they would not be a nui­sance to the pub­lic. He said the per­mit his of­fice gave would be re­voked if the sound level goes beyond 50 deci­bels.

He also said no ob­struc­tions should be placed on the roads and that fire­works or a py­rotech­nic dis­play at the closed roads is “strictly pro­hib­ited.”

Gabii sa Ka­bilin is an an­nual cul­tural event in the cities of Cebu, La­puLapu, Man­daue and Tal­isay wherein mu­se­ums and her­itage places are open to the pub­lic from 6 p.m. un­til mid­night.

Aside from their dis­plays and ex­hibits that are avail­able on or­di­nary days, par­tic­i­pat­ing sites would also show­case spe­cial ac­tiv­i­ties dur­ing this one spe­cial night.

The event is spear­headed by the Ra­mon Aboitiz Foun­da­tion Inc. (Rafi), cul­ture and her­itage be­ing one if its fo­cus ar­eas. Rafi aims to help com­mu­ni­ties un­der­stand, value and share their cul­tural her­itage with oth­ers. The foun­da­tion’s other fo­cus ar­eas are in­te­grated de­vel­op­ment, mi­cro-fi- nance & en­trepreneur­ship, lead­er­ship & cit­i­zen­ship, and ed­u­ca­tion.
