After a two-year hiatus brought on by the coronavirus disease epidemic of 2019, the Lanzones Festival in the island province of Camiguin formally resumed.

One of the festival’s highlights this week is the 2nd Camiguin Divefest Underwater Photo Contest, which the provincial administration unveiled on Monday.

In an interview, Provincial Tourism Officer Candice Dael stated that the Department of Tourism in the Northern Region also sponsored festival activities like the picture competition.

The Lanzones Festival is making a comeback, she continued, and this is a chance to celebrate hope—hope for the continuation of our healing and gratitude for the fact that Covid-19 is no longer so harmful.

Following a Holy Mass on Sunday, the grand procession of the abundant lanzones fruit harvest and the “Mutya sa Buahanan” float competition marked the start of the week-long event.

Lanzones are referred to locally as “buahanan”.

Governor Xavier Jesus Romualdo instructed the provincial government to maintain tight health regulations and restrictions for visitors to the island.

The provincial government also inaugurated the Lanzones Festival Music Competition, the “Kabog” Showdown, and the Agro-industrial and Tourism Trade Fair for visitors in the afternoon.

Eagles that have been seen at Mount Hibok-Hibok, the island’s highest peak, are known locally as “Kabog.”

The Mutya sa Buahanan pageant and the Street Dancing Competition, respectively, will be the main activities on October 28 and 29.

The festival’s celebration of a successful crop and noteworthy achievements is in its 43rd year.
