Councilor Jason Villarosa said more than 80 concessionaires joined in the grilling of the 3,000 chicken inasal at The Upper East.
Among those present at the longest grill event were Bacolod City officials, Rep. Francisco Benitez of Negros Occidental’s third district, Victorias Mayor Javier Miguel Benitez, Matriarch Olivia Yanson, former Bacolod Rep. John Orola, and Negrense actor Joel Torre.
The other festival venues were at the Manokan Country and the North Capitol Road.
