Abuyog Town hosts Buyugan Festival in Leyte every year, and this year’s “environmental theme” definitely impressed thousands of spectators in the most recent Sinulog Festival.

Tribu Buyoganon won P500,000 while the second placer took P300,000 each, the third placer brought home P200,000, and the 4th and 5th placers received P150,000 and P100,000, respectively.

Lumad Basakon from Cebu, Last year’s winner, only placed second this year while the Sinulog Tribe from Carmen, Cebu won third place; and the festival of Lanao del Norte, fourth place.

I could not experience the fun and excitement of this year’s Sinulog Festival, but I will definitely go there in Cebu for the Sinulog Festival 2010.
