Fatima College of Camiguin (FCC) took the second spot in the tableau competition followed by the Columbia National High School, Guinsiliban National High School and then Tupsan National High School.

The Columbia National High School, meanwhile, ranked second in the street dancing competition, followed by FCC, Tupsan National High School, and Mambajao National High School.

Eight contingents creatively portrayed their own version of the tale, livened up with the presence of the higantes, replicas of the black ants and the Mindanao Hornbill, locally known as the Tayamtam.

The provincial government said slight twists were initiated in this year’s presentations to preserve the original storyline of the legend of the lanzones fruit as well as to give the celebration a unique and local touch.

Special awards were also given to FCC as the liveliest contingent and best in headdress while Sagay wins home the best in costume award.

For the “Kalanrakas sa Kabataan” (elementary level) participated by winners from the municipality level, Barangay Benoni, Mahinog was named winner and Barangay Pandan of Mambajao town took the second spot, followed by barangay Cabuan of Guinsiliban town. (JCV/PIA 10)
