According to Leonardia, the confirmation came from Presidential Management Staff (PMS) during a meeting with Silver MassKara Festival organization on September 30.

Leonardia will introduce President Duterte at the opening program which will be held at the Bacolod City Public Plaza at 4:00 Pm.

Sunstar reported that other government officials are also expected to arrive in Bacolod City, including Senate president Aquilino Pimental, Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Pinol and Tourism Chief Wanda Teo.

The opening of MassKara Festival was initially set on October 1, Saturday. However, PMS suggested to Bureau of Internal Revenue Deputy Commissioner Jesus Clint Aranas to move the schedule on Sunday since it might be too taxing if the present will directly go to Bacolod from Vietnam.

Leonardio also thanked Jesus Clint Aranas, a Negrense, for his efforts in following up the invitation at the Office of the President.

The tough-talking president went to Vietnam on Sepetember 28 for a two-day working visit.

Although the opening program was moved, kiosks at the Public Plaza and Carnival Sites at the Bacolod Government Center and SM City have already start operating on Saturday.

This year's MassKara Festival will start on October 1 and will end on October 23, making it as the longest celebration in the history of bacolod.
