Whether Caroling is allowed in Boracay, rests on the hands of village Officials.
This was revealed by Magdalena Prado, the Municipal Social Welfare Development Officer of Malay (MSWDO).
According to Prado, those who would be caroling should have a permit from the Village since at the national level there is an implemented “Solicitation Permit Law.”
Prado added that, the issuance of permit to the groups or organizations who wish to go caroling would depend on the Village.
The MSWD Officer said that during application for permit, the purpose and for which the proceeds would be, should be stated. This is because allegedly, permit is only issued if the proceeds are only for the disadvantaged or charitable institutions.
However, Prado made clear that caroling is prohibited for children to go caroling to avoid accidents since it is dangerous for kids to go out at night.
