Jojo Quimpo, president of the Aklanon Sto. Nino Association in British Columbia, said the members of the board of directors and other members of the group will provide food and drinks for the revelers.
"This is a potluck event. The members are encouraged but not required to bring food and drinks to share with our fellow Aklanons during the event," Quimpo said.
Quimpo said the event is also a perfect time for them to present their projects and accomplishments.
"The purpose of the event is to provide a venue for solidarity, unity and fellowship among the Aklanons living and working abroad," said Quimpo.

Councillor George Chow, who was one of the original organizers of the Chinatown New Year parade, urged Mr. Quimpo to take Ati-atihan event outside, perhaps on Fraser St., so the Filipino community can take it's appropriate place in the city's cultural celebrations.
Whether the Ati-atihan Santo Nino event moves outside or the community opts for a single June celebration of the National Day, the arrangements are pretty straightforward, Chow told Mr. Quimpo, if the objectives are clear.
