They’ve been to the Pacific Salt Farms, the Cape Bolinao Lighthouse, and the Balingasay River river tour, he said.
The candidates sampled fresh seafood delicacies while boating the Balingasay River, and they saw how salt is traditionally made at the Pacific Salt Farms and Cape Bolinao Lighthouse, a local landmark.
According to Celeste, they are now getting ready for the next Mangunguna Festival and Ballayon Arts Festival.
Workshops, displays, and contests will be part of the Ballayon Arts Festival. The Mangunguna festival, which includes a street dancing competition, is the main event; it’s comparable to our local fiesta, he said.
