The Lilac Food Festival event, happening on October 17, 2015, was marred with an issue that the IDEA of having the food fest was “stolen” by the City Government of Marikina from Marisse Miziel Manalac who posted the issue on her Facebook account.
The City Government of Marikina through its Public Information Office Head, Edward Sison, belied the claim saying that the idea of having the food fest was in the works since last year and was supposed to happen in December 2014. Ms. Manalac only came into the picture in February 2015 when they had an initial meeting with the Marikina Tourism office and in August 2015 when the proposal was presented to all stakeholders.
