As locals and residents of Boracay we had our share of pride every time the island receives praises, awards, and other acknowledgements.
We say thank you, most of the time to those who gave the awards, and sometimes forget to extend our appreciation to the very reason of that praise. Boracay.
However, there are those who remembers it, and even celebrates the elemental forces that enriches the island's very life, and this time it’s for the Wind and Water.
The Philippine Red-Cross Boracay-Malay Chapter in cooperation with the Provincial and Municipal Government, the DOT and other private sectors will be celebrating Boracay's Inaugural Festival of the Winds on November 03-04, 2012.
The festival's opening ceremony on November 03, Saturday will start at 8:00am at a certain establishment in Station 3, Boracay, where Malay Mayor John Yap will give his inspirational message. This will be followed by fun competitions and activities which will mark the celebration of the wind and water elements.
The events which will occur on the mentioned consecutive dates includes Junior and Senior Life Guard Competitions, Paraw Regatta, Lantern Parade, Ocean Swim and Adventure Run, Underwater Ocean Clean-up and Kite flying Competition.
The Festival will be taking place at PRC Boracay-Malay Chapter's partner resorts and or establishments.
