The city hall of San Fernando on Friday was transformed into a Halloween destination with more than 20 offices creatively decorated in line with this year’s Cultural Enhancement Program or Halo-Halloween Year 5.
City Human Resource Development Officer Rachelle Yusi said that instead of horror ideas, the participating offices were assigned to depict the popular Pinoy Fantaseryes namely Panday, Marina and Darna.
Some city hall employees also dressed up themselves portraying the characters of the TV series which were assigned to their respective offices.
“Every year, we are conducting the inter-office decorating contest and individual costume contest to unleash the creativity of our employees as well as promote camaraderie in the workplace, “ Yusi added.
A total of 272 children of bonafide city government employees also joined the individual costume contest for the children category. They were also given time to roam around the city hall for the traditional distribution of candies spearheaded by the participating offices.
In his speech, Mayor Edwin “EdSa” Santiago said that besides strengthening work relationships, the activity also promotes Filipino family culture and traditions.
“It is very important that we let our employees bond with their families, especially their children. After all, the City Government of San Fernando is driven to provide better services that will cater the needs of the youth,” Mayor Edsa added.
