2015 PASIGABONG FESTIVAL
I was invited once again to judge in the recently concluded Pasigabong Festival of Barangay Granada, Bacolod City.
One of the rural barangay but classifies as first class barangay of the City of Bacolod, Baranagay Granada is one of the biggest barangays in terms of land area in Bacolod City. It has a total land area of 2,984.621 hectares. Of this area, 25% is residential; 70% is agricultural and 5% utilized for other needs.
The Pasigabong Festival is one of the biggest festival in Bacolod in the Barangay level. Amongst the highlights of the Festival were the Street Dance Competition and the Search for Pasigabong Queen 2015. I served as one of the judges in these two events of the festival. Seeing the performances of each participating Poruk, one can’t say that it was only a barangay festival. No wonder that this Barangay was the grand champion in the 2014 Masskara Festival and had recently represented Bacolod City in the Chinese New Year Festival in Hongkong.
This year’s Pasigabong Festival was also memorable for me because the Jojo Vito Designs Gallery was the one who made the trophies for the Pasigabong Street Dancing, Basketball Tournament and even for the Pasigabong Queen 2015.

During the pageant, I also gave a corporate special award dubbed as the 2015 Icon of Jojo Vito Designs Gallery which I personally choose amongst the 10 lovely candidates. The winner of this pageant will be Granada’s candidate for 2015 Masskara Queen while the winner in the Street Dance Competition will be representing the Barangay for the Masskara Festival 2015.
