It's going to be another Adobo Festival at Balay Negrense in Silay City on November 5, 2009. This day also marks Negros' independence from Spanish rule in 1898.
History tells us that the revolution led by Aniceto Lacson and Nicolas Golez coming from the north of Bacolod City (Silay City), and Juan Araneta from the south (Bago City), won in an overwhelming victory over the Spaniards.
Thus the celebration capitals of Negros Day are in Silay and Bago Cities.
The Balay Negrense Museum in Silay will again hold it's annual celebration with a cooking contest for its Adobo Festival. In connection with this, there will be a kitchen art exhibit by various Negrense artists.
Everybody is welcome to join the celebration.
