“Caroling is prohibited in Boracay”
As early as this November, and as the yuletide season is here, the Island Administrator of Boracay has clarified that “caroling” is banned on the island even on Christmas day.
According to the Administrator, as there is an influx of carolers in the island every year, they could no longer be sure, particularly the residents, of what is the real purpose behind the carolers’ house-to-house visits.
As a result, they are implementing a strict measure towards those who wishes to conduct such activity on the island.
May they be adults or children, the prohibition is applied the same.
In line with this, Island Administrator Glenn Sacapano advised the residents to report or to inform the Barangay Officials and “Tanods” if there are those who are caroling and are asking for money or donation.
The residents could also report them to the Municipal Social Worker for their documents to be inspected and be acted upon.
