Davao City decorated with Christmas lanterns made by inmates – official

The Davao City government has started decorating the city for the Christmas season and some of the materials used are the lanterns made by inmates at the Davao City Jail.

Museo Dabawenyo Officer-In-Charge Winnie Rose Galay-Bulig said the city placed an order of 300 “parols” for this year’s Pasko Fiesta, with the theme, “Fairyland.”

She said the inmates were given monetary compensation by the lantern suppliers.

“Our theme for this year’s Pasko Fiesta is Fairyland. And then for our decorations, majority of them are new, and there are some that are recycled. And those lanterns that we see were made by inmates,” Galay-Bulig said.

The lanterns will be displayed in center islands of the major streets and in all 22 public parks in the city.
