BB Cajes leads preparation for town’s Diamond Jubilee


Barely two months old in her administration as Trinidad town mayor, Judith “BB” del Rosario – Cajes leads the preparation for the Diamond Jubilee celebration of the town as it reaches 60 years cum September 1.

The town’s Diamond Jubilee shall be celebrated in a week-long festivity that integrates the socio-economic and health thrusts inspired by the promotion of culture and heritage of the town’s new administration. Thus, the theme “Looking Back, Moving Forward.”

The week-long celebration will begin on August 27 and shall run until September 1, the day that Trinidad was established as a town 60 years ago through the able guidance and assistance of Juan Gonzales.

The pages of the history of Trinidad dates back in the pre-Hispanic era where early migrants settled along the Ipil River. From then, settler’s have sought for the identity of the place as town and the long sought dream was realized on August 14, 1947 when the Municipal Charter thru Executive Order No. 80 of the late President Manuel A. Roxas.

The EO established the once known “Ipil” and adjacent barangays to comprise the Municipality of Trinidad. It was on SEPTEMBER 01, 1947 that the Municipality of Trinidad was established. The town was named after the wife of the late President Manuel A. Roxas and to a coincidence the name of the Patron Saint of the mother town Talibon – Santisima Trinidad.

This year’s celebration shall integrate the administration’s efforts to promote economy thru sustainable agriculture promotions and programs. Thus, the town will launch its first festival on the record, the “Karomata Festival” which is a week-long agro-fair event.

The Karomata Festival will begin with a festival parade of colorful karomatas (native carts) towed by Carabaos. The parade is a celebration of the people’s effort to bring the goods and harvest from the farm to market. The mayor recognizes this effort as this exhibits the people’s initiative to give life to the economic activity of the town.

The agro-fair includes the week-long sale of fresh agricultural products from the respective communities in the town, a food festival that shall focus the limelight on the various manners of preparation of food, a Free Livestock Clinic and competition for “Pinaka” that shall consider the size, weight and appearance of agricultural yields.
