Lanzones Festival Camiguin Island
Lanzones Festival Camiguin Island, it’s been a while since my last visit to the Island Born of fire Camiguin Island. Most of the time when we visit at Camiguin is during the Holy week and some occasion. Before the end of October the group was decided to visit Camiguin just for weekend getaway and have this tag line (for a change) and to stay for overnight. We have only 2 reasons why we say yes to come to Camiguin, because on the weekend is the opening of the Lanzones festival which this Island popular with the sweetest Lanzones in the Island of Mindanao, lanzones is a small grape-sized tropical fruit grown all over the island. The week-long Lanzones Festival is one of the more colorful events in the Philippines. The second reason is to experience how harvest Lanzones from the trees and to eat unlimited Lanzones which all of us was satisfied during this experience. They are celebrating festival every October.
To make the story short and to start our adventure, we arrived at Camiguin Island on Saturday 6 pm then went to our host for that evening to have some dinner and to stay overnight. During dinner we also start planning on what to do on the next day during the opening of the Lanzones Festival because we have only 1 day to enjoy Camiguin. Instead of going to the opening of the Lanzones Festival we decided to went to Mantigue Island early in the morning to enjoy the white sand and calm water with the beautiful view of big mountains in front of the Mantigue Island during morning and have our lunch at Fishpen which is located near Benoni port.
So we will spend our half day for the second reason, to experience how to harvest lanzones and to eat unlimited. The grandparents of our host incdo were owned lands where lots of Lanzones trees were planted and she promised us for the experience of eat all you can Lanzones.
So here we go, we are just like little kids very happy when we saw these trees and yes I admit that we really enjoyed during these experience and because of the excitement I felt I forgot to ate lots of Lanzones because I was enjoyed taking pictures on the trees. Lolz.. J I think I need to come back here next year during the lanzones festival to eat lots of Lanzones and when it will be happen I will leave my camera to avoid destruction for my unlimited Lanzones.. :-p
So tell me, do you think you can eat more Lanzones if these are in front of you…?
