(18 October 2010) - Camiguin has successfully opened today its weeklong festivity to celebrate the 31st Lanzones Festival.
Despite the typhoon that hits hard in other parts of the country, the island’s weather remained calm allowing more visitors and locals to come and enjoy the treat.
The first thing visitors crave for as they come in the island is the fruit. Governor “JJ” Romualdo said that they have enough lanzones fruit this year and its price ranges from P23.00 to P30.00 per kilo.
Aside from street dancing and tableau presentations, the festivity also features the “UGMAD 2010” Trade Fair which showcases the island’s best products and handicrafts from arts and crafts, fashion accessories, food, furniture, gifts and house wares.
Other fresh farm products like fruits and vegetables are also sold at a very low price. One of the highlights during the grand opening at the Camiguin Convention Center is the unveiling of the anti-smoking billboard.
Governor “JJ’ Romualdo proudly announces the creation of the new implementing rules and regulations of the Provincial Anti-Smoking Ordinance. He said they will implement it phase by phase to ensure its acceptability and success.
Vice-Governor Leo Lasacar on the other hand expressed thanks for the rich harvest. He noted that the Lanzones of Camiguin is incomparable anywhere in the world not only for its sweetness but also for its unique juiciness. (Jorie C. Valcorza - PIA 10)
