0 [Bantay] ► Kannawidan Festival: Where the Countryside Superlatives Convene

"The superlatives in the agriculture world are here!"

[BANTAY, ILOCOS SUR, PHILIPPINES] The province of Ilocos Sur has its own way to commemorate its birth. In fact, this 'way' I am referring to is relatively new on the face of my province's rich history. Thanks to the brilliant mind of then Governor DV Savellano (note, I am not connected to this politician and neither he knows me personally). It was during the latter's administration when a festive way to commemorate the foundation day of our province was put into life—the Kannawidan Festival.



[BANTAY] ► HELLO! WELCOME TO BANTAY!


On a hot afternoon of 01 February 2016, I went to the Quirino Stadium in Bantay town to witness for myself what has always been missed by me every year—the Agri-pinaka Contest.

Well, Kannawidan Festival is not all about this. I mean, this is a week-long festival that features a wide variety of events and programs from beauty pageants, music, culture, street partying, trade fair, street dancing and more! Basically, this day was all about the superlatives in the agricultural world, specifically the record setters in our province Ilocos Sur.

The photos below are some of the entries vying for the "pinaka" title.

The superlatives in the agriculture world are here! This is just one of the regular programs happening in Kannawidan Festival yearly.

There are more entries from different categories but I was not able to see them all. Actually, the agricultural yields and livestock came from the Ilocos countrysides. Anyway, I'm greeting all the people of Ilocos Sur a happy foundation day and let's all enjoy our Kannawidan Festival! 

Note: The Kannawidan Festival happens in different parts of the province. However, the town of Bantay is the location for most activities. / end
