ABRE GRANDE 2016
ABRE GRANDE 2016–Hooray ! We made it today,November 8,2016 the ” Abre-Grande 2016,” opened with a good spirit of fun. The c’mon moments fittingly started with an Ecumenical Worship Prayer, a pious recollection of gratefulness on how Palompon cross-overed the Yolanda phenomenon.
Then the the most awaited 15-km Eastern Visayas Open Kayak Marathon attracted everyone as one-by-one the kayakers from Kalanggaman started to come to the finish line….Congratulations winners….
Got the chance to make the first glance of the 11 LAWIG Queen 2016 candidates in their presentation during the program.
The highlighting mode of Abre-Grande focus on the annual Agro-fair by the Municipal Agriculture Office. This was duly opened with a ribbon cutting by Mayor Ramon Chu Oñate and Vice Mayor Myra Georgina L. Arevalo together with the Sangguniang bayan members…Come on everyone- you can have here the best price in town!
So for another style of paddle-to-win there is the single boat race, a one of kind competition, that only happens in Palompon….Watch the stretching of arms here..
And for the Finale Event- watching the Jet Ski Race was indeed a “hair-raising”experience. Congratulations to all the winners. God bless us all..
