Last October 2010, we went to Camiguin to celebrate my son’s second birthday. We have no idea that Camiguin has Lanzones Festival and they celebrate it every third week of October. Too bad that we were not able to witness the celebration but still we are happy to taste Camiguin’s lanzones.

Do you know that Camiguin produces the sweetest lanzones in the Philippines and you can buy them for P25 -P30 per kilo and sometimes as low as P20. You can see this fruit anywhere in Camiguin and we always have them wherever we go. Don’t be surprised if you see lanzones in airport’s conveyor because most of the tourists buy lanzones in boxes. This serves as their pasalubong aside from pastel.
Festival is very famous in the Philippines, every place has their own festival. It is their own way of thanking God for giving them a bountiful harvest. Expect that this is a long week celebration, full of activities such as parades, street dancing competitions, cultural shows, beauty pageants, trade fairs, and more parties.
There is no doubt that there are so many tourists who visit the Philippines festivals but I have never attended any festival in the province and given the chance, I would love to go back to Camiguin to join and experience their Lanzones Festival. I do not want to miss the celebration and I want to enjoy their sweetest lanzones and famous pastel once again.
Well, it is not only the festival that I’m looking forward to Camiguin but I want to go back there and have my relaxation and rewind. Camiguin is a small place but there are so many tourist attractions that you should not miss. You can visit beach, waterfalls, cold spring, hot spring and many more.
