The whole-day celebration, which will be hosted at The Outlets at Lipa inside Lima Technology Center, Lipa-Malvar, Batangas, will start with a Eucharistic Mass at 9am followed by the Culture, Arts and Environment Awards with Batangas Province Governor Hermilando I. Mandanas gracing the event.
This will be followed with the opening of the Art Walk, a display of Batangueño art pieces curated by Gruopo Sining Batangas and Batangas Shoppes, showcasing different products from various clusters and farm tourism groups in the province.
