Zamboanga City continues to sizzle on the 8th day of the Fiesta Hermosa celebration today, October 8, as the City Government holds Servicio Medical, a free clinic at the City Health Office from 8am to 12noon.

City Health Officer Rodelin Agbulos said the medical outreach program, an annual event during the Zamboanga Hermosa Festival 2015, will serve senior citizens and persons with disabilities (PWDs), as a show of gratitude, love and devotion to Nuestra Señora La Virgen del Pilar, the city’s patron saint.

The free services include medical consultation, dental extraction and other special services.

Meanwhile, over 50 pairs will participate in the Zambo Dancesport competition set at 1pm today at the Western Mindanao state University gymnasium.  Huge cash prizes await the winners.

On the other hand, the Zamboanga Peninsula Trade Exposition (ZAMPEX) organized by the Department of Trade and Industry will also roll out starting today October 8 until October 11 at the Garden Orchid Hotel Convention Center.

On exhibit will be the best and finest products, both food and non-food, from the different parts of the Zamboanga Peninsula. Also featured are the country’s leading canned sardines, manufactured in Zamboanga.

In conjunction with ZAMPEX, DTI will also initiate the Zampen Investment Conference (ICON) where business meetings and matchings will be held. The event is set at the Royce Convention at 1pm today.  — Sheila Covarrubias
