All systems go for Sinulog 2010 Lanao Norte contingent

Iligan City (15 January) -- IN a bid to finally capture the elusive championship in the biggest cultural stage of the Philippines Cebu's Sinulog Festival, the Lanao del Norte contingent arrived early last January 13 for the grandest cultural festival in the country.

"This is the fulfillment to our promise to last year's winning group in the Municipal Festival Contest during our Golden Araw Anniversary. And with their spectacular win, we are sending this year to the Sinulog the Kapatagan National High School to be our contingent," explained Governor Khalid Dimaporo.

This is the second time that the provincial government is sending an official contingent in the Free Interpretation category where Lanao del Norte placed 4th over-all in a category that saw 25 groups compete.

"We are joining this festival first to show that Lanao del Norte is composed of diverse people groups and cultures and second is to declare that our province is a very peaceful place," Dimaporo said.

Last year, Lanao del Norte was also able to grab the coveted title of Best in Costume despite being a first-timer in the festival.

"It's all systems go for our second attempt at the Free Interpretation title," assured Tourism Officer Minda Regis.

This year, the province's Sinulog contingent is composed of 95 dancers, 50 propsmen, 30 instrumentalists and 24 support group personnel. Lanao del Norte is also represented by Lota Correos from the capital town of Tubod in the Sinulog Festival Queen.

"This is another chance for us to showcase to the whole world that Lanao del Norte is indeed a beautiful and peaceful province where people live in unity and harmony with one another," said Information Officer Lyndon Calica.

The Lanao del Norte contingent is currently housed in the Abellana National School. Governor Khalid Dimaporo is set to personally lead the contingent in the 5.1 kilometer route of the Sinulog Grand Parade. (VNL / PIO-LDN) [top]
