Have you ever been curious about Sarangani Mindanao? I have! I’ve always wondered what you can do, what you can see, what you can visit/explore/discover and even what you can eat in Sarangani! Admittedly, all I know for sure (so far) about the Sarangani Province are:
– it’s the district being represented by top Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao
– it’s where you can experience fun-filled water tubing
– it’s the home of my former classmate in Ateneo, incumbent Sarangani Provincial Governor Miguel Rene Dominguez
Needless to say, this Mindanao blogger needs to explore, smell, taste, feel Sarangani! And what better way to do it but during the most awaited Sarangani Bay Festival 2011!
Sarangani Bay Festival or the Sarangani BayFest is Southern Philippines’ biggest beach party! From May 19 to 21, it’s nothing but fun under the sun at Sarangani’s beautiful beaches.
The 2011 Sarangani Bay Festival or SARBAY should be your last hurrah before the end of summer 🙂
Check out the Sarangani Bay Festival 2011 official schedule of activities :
Among the activities of SarBay 2011 are lumba bugsay, swim across the bay, frisbee competition, beach volleyball, beach foot volley, beach football, sand sculpture competition, skimboard, bancarera, fireworks display and concert by the bay featuring Teddy of “Showtime” fame and his band Rocksteddy.
By the way, I recently watched one of Rocksteddy’s gigs and they sure don’t disappoint!
