Cultural, agri-biz events fill MP’s founding Lang-ay Fest
by Erwin S. Batnag

BONTOC, Mountain Province – Cultural, agri-business, and other fun-filled activities filled Mountain Province’s 52nd founding anniversary and 15th Lang-ay Festival, which started last April 1.

With the theme, “Nurturing cultural traditions through indigenous peoples’ education,” the celebration started with a civic parade attended by officials and personnel of the different local government units, national line agencies, academe, and people’s and non-government organizations.

The week-long celebration showcased the rich culture and tradition of the people of Mountain Province.

Various activities were lined up by the provincial government with partner agencies like the Department of Trade and Industry and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority before the main events.

The opening rites were held at the provincial plaza with Acting Vice Gov. Francis O. Tauli opening the program while Acting Gov. Bonifacio Lacwasan joined the elders from the different cluster tribes of Mountain Province to perform the traditional opening rites, “tekwab” and “salibongbong.”

The Lang-ay by the Street was held where native delicacies and coffee were offered to guests and locals for free at streets of central Bontoc while local bands and singers provided entertainment. The second part was held on the same venue on April 5.

The Provincial Anti-Drug Abuse Council spearheaded the battle of the bands in the evening to provide awareness on the dangers and ill-effects of using illegal drugs.

Last April 3 and 4, the Provincial Technical Education Skills and Development Council spearheaded the opening of the Technical-Vocational Education and Training Encounter.

The Provincial Cooperatives Office spearheaded the conduct of a Cooperatives Solidarity Day last April 3.

A medical, circumcision, and dental mission was also spearheaded by the Provincial Health Office at the Capitol quadrangle.

Other activities before the twin festivals are the Red Cross variety show and raffle bonanza last April 3 and the Mountain Province history and culture quiz bee last April 5.

The mobile passport processing that was scheduled last April 5 was moved to April 27.
