Pagbilao participates, wins awards in Niyogyugan Festival 2016

The local government unit of Pagbilao, under the leadership of Mayor Shierre Ann Portes-Palicpic, enthusiastically participated in Quezon Province’s Niyogyugan Festival 2016, August 15 to 27. The Municipality also seized awards from the Festival’s various competitions.

Just like in the previous years, the Municipality of Pagbilao heartily joined in the activities and events in line with the celebration of this year’s Niyogyugan Festival, the official festivity of Quezon Province. Pagbilao Mayor Shierre Ann Portes-Palicpic was in full support as her kababayans participated in different activities and competitions.

Staff of the Municipal Agriculture’s Office and members of the Rural Improvement Club (RIC) – Palsabangon manned the Pagbilao booth designed and created by Pagbilao National High School teacher, Mr. Virgilio Jaynar. The booth featured and sold different products from Pagbilao such as tinuktok, tanglad juice, turmeric products, and organic vegetables. The Pagbilao booth notched the seventh place in the Best Booth Competition among Class A municipalities, earning it a reward of P150,000 worth of project.

Nicole Kristel Losloso, meanwhile, represented the Municipality in the Binibining Niyogyugan 2016 pageant. Despite failing to make it to the final round, Nicole wowed the respected panel of judges with her legs that go on forever (she’s one of the tallest candidates with her 5-feet 9-inches bearing); and with her genuine, sincere and ecstatic Pagbilaoin smile. The 18-year-old beauty is Ms. Quezon 2016 3rd runner-up. The Binibining Niyogyugan 2016 coronation happened August 26 at the Quezon Convention Center (QCC).

Additionally, another Pagbilao pride proved a thing before every Quezonian. Pagbilao’s very own Louise Nicole Rodriguez, who is gorgeous and confident herself, was the female host in the pageant’s coronation night.

Pagbilao street dancers showcased a Pagbilaoin-kind of performance which is solid, lively and colorful during the Street Dance Parade and Street Dance Showdown, held August 27. It was very noticeable that the crowd along Lucena City streets and the audience inside the QCC took a stop and held their breath as the street dancing team from the “Land of Papag at Bilao” exhibited their routine. The team’s hardwork, as well as their day-by-day and night-by-night rehearsals, paid off when they bagged the first runner-up spot in the Best in Street Dance Parade Competition. Mayor Palicpic, Municipal Administrator Ian Palicpic, and Tourism Officer Jessica Antona witnessed the event.

The Municipality also took the second runner-up spot in the Best Float Competition, and received consolation prizes in the Best in Street Dance Showdown Competition and Best in Herbal Landscape Competition.

Furthermore, the Municipal Government of Pagbilao vows to be one with the Provincial Government of Quezon in celebrating other Niyogyugan Festivals to come, not only to show support and participation, but more to discover creative talents from Pagbilao and to exhibit the Municipality’s rich culture, colorful history and local products.
