CAMIGUIN, Philippines – All road and ferries lead to Camiguin Island for one of Mindanao’s grandest festivals – the 40th Lanzones Festival from October 20 to 27.
Lanzones or buwahan as called here is the staple fruit produce of this pearl-shaped island blessed with cold, hot, and soda spring, waterfalls, white sand beaches and peace-loving people.
Camiguin, situated between Bohol in the north and Cagayan de Oro and Misamis Oriental in the south, is one of the Philippines’ most visited island, and banks on the green tourism industry.
The festival is more meaningful this year as the province of Camiguin won the National Competitive Council’s 4th Most Competitive province and Mambajao, the island capital, won as the Most Competitive Town for 6th to 3rd class town last October 24.
