Camiguin Lanzones Festival winner: Mahinog retains championship title in tableau competition

Festival Queen 1st runner up: Mahinog's Apple May S. Feniza

October 24, 2010 – AFTER making a vow to regain the prestigious title in Camiguin Lanzones Festival tableau competition, finally the Columbia St. Michael's Parish High School contingent sponsored by the local government unit of Mahinog made it again as this year’s champion in yesterday’s 2010 Camiguin Lanzones Festival, besting 7 other contingents in the inter-agency category.

The competition was very tough most notably between Mahinog and Sagay. But the winner must be declared and it was Mahinog who made (deserved) it. Sagay was awarded second placer, while Yumbing National High School, third placer.

“It was a sweet victory for Mahinog,” Mayor Alex R. Jajalla told Mahinog Trumpet. Jajalla thanked all the Mahinognons for their prayers.

Asked why he was confident Mahinog would retain the title, “Through preparation, hard practice and strong determination have made these things possible,” he said.

Mahinog contingent, choreographed by multi-awarded Surigaonon Harold Antallan, impressed the crowd with their clean transition, fast-paced dance steps, lot of moves and surprises, and magical props, among others . Mahinog was also declared as the liveliest contingent.

  2. I was about to make a news article on this story for our Columbian Digest but this news story is more than enough.

    I think this is the article that was included in the Manila Bulletin issue?

    However, Mr. Homer, can I also contribute some stories - feature, may be - in this blog page?
