Laguna’s Anilag Festival 2019 ends with a bang!

 

STA. CRUZ, Laguna – Thousands flocked to the provincial capitol as the 2019 Anilag Festival drew to a close on the 9th of March, ending the colorful and exciting eight-day annual celebration of the province.

The last night of the celebration saw the Festival Grounds seem like a sea of people as thousands witnessed the Pyromusical Competition and the live concert performance of guests during the People’s Night Extreme.

The crowd was treated to an amazing array of live music from Kamikazee, This Band, Moymoy Palaboy Band, and Janine Teñoso that thrilled the audience to the core.

Also gracing the night’s event were former SAP Bong Go, Robin Padilla, Ai-ai De Las Alas, Boy II Quizon, and Philip Salvador.

This year’s theme is “Masaya ang Pamilya sa Masayang Laguna,” and Governor Ramil L. Hernandez made sure that the Lagunense family got to enjoy and appreciate the essence of the celebration offered to them.

The term Anilag is short for “Ani ng Laguna” that showcases the abundant harvest from the land, coupled with Laguna’s wealth of natural resources, unique handicrafts, services, and skills, and the diverse and amazing pool of talent of the Lagunenses.

Highlights of the Anilag featured Land Float Competition, Street Dancing, Trade Fair Booth Competition, Drum and Lyre Competition, Ginoo at Binibining Laguna, Little Mister & Miss Laguna, Water Color Competition for the differently-abled, Mardi Gay and LGBTQ Parade, Laguna Gay Queen and Lesbian King competitions, Cosplay, singing, and dance contests, and a whole lot more.

Another blockbuster attraction was the carnival rides which began days before the opening of Anilag.

 Governor Hernandez credits the huge success of the festival to the relentless effort and full cooperation of all the committees involved under the leadership of Laguna, Tourism, Culture, Arts & Trade Office (LTCATO) head and Overall Anilag Festival Committee Chairman Dr. Rosauro “Bimbo” A. Sta. Maria.

 Hernandez is also thankful for the full support of Vice Governor Atty. Karen C. Agapay, members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, Provincial Administrator Atty. Dulce H. Rebanal, down to the department/unit heads, officers, and employees of the provincial government.

The governor also praised the remarkable contribution of the Laguna Provincial Police Office, Bureau of Fire Protection, and the Sta. Cruz Municipal Police Station in maintaining peace and order throughout the celebration, and the Laguna Traffic Management Office for supervising traffic flow.
