Zamboanga Hermosa Festival Schedule of Activities

In my opinion, this year's Zamboanga Hermosa Festival marketing plan is not working well. Local residents and tourist had difficulty in getting the correct schedule of activities for the festivities. Posters has not yet been released and the tarpaulins were displayed just yesterday. The schedule that I posted here several days ago which I got from a local newspaper was errronous and thus I have to delete it.

Here is the schedule I got from the tarpaulin which was display along the Gov. Camins Ave Rotonda:
