Kalilangan Festival 2010 Opens in Grandeur

With great fanfare and vibrant fiesta spirit

Kalilangan Festival 2010 formally opened yesterday

Signaling Gensan’s 71st Foundation Anniversary celebration

For one week, over thirty different events will happen

There’s the much-anticipated Lakan at Lakambini Pageant

Which the organizers believe has the best crop of finalists by far

The Queen of Southern Mindanao Festivals will also add color to our fiesta

And there’s the Kadsagayan Street Dancing Competition

Where five local contingents vie for the much-coveted championship trophy

In addition to this, seven municipalities will also dance their way to 150,000 pesos

As the Festivals of Mindanao Street Dancing Competition is revived this year

 What made the Grand Ceremonial Opening more memorable

Was the presence of Gensan’s leaders Mayor Jun Acharon and Rep. Darlene Custodio,

Former Rep. Lu Antonino and former Senator Franklin Drilon

Truth to tell, they have always been the source of inspiration of the organizers

 But what really brought the house down was when our guests joined the dancers

And literally segued their way to everyone’s hearts

It was indeed a sight to behold and every photographer’s dream shot!

 GMA 7’s Geoff Taylor, Grand winner of R U The Next Big Star dropped by

He surprised everyone by jumping from the stage and joined the contingents

He sure deserved to win – he knew what clicked with the audience

He sang a popular tune and had the people sing along with him

As nighttime came, the dancing continued

The fiesta fever was now on high gear

Infecting everyone who was at the Oval Plaza that time

Then the COUNTDOWN began

Led by Councilors Meg Santos, Ric Atendido, Nep Natividad, Vic Dante and Oco

The Grand Fireworks Display culminated the day’s event

It was one exhausting and stressful February 22

But it was worth all the effort

We invite everyone to watch all the nightly shows beginning tonight
