BFI ready to help Kalibo for Ati-atihan celebration

The stakeholders in Boracay are busy preparing for the upcoming Ati-atihan 2013 celebration on the island.

However, they are still ready to help the organizers of Kalibo ati-atihan when it comes to the promotion of what is dubbed as the “Mother of all festivals in the country”, the Sto. Nino Ati-atihan.

In an interview with Boracay Foundation Incorporated or BFI President, Dionesio “Jony” Salme, he said that they are positive in promoting and or introducing the mentioned festival to the tourists in Boracay to be a part of it.

Even as they are also promoting Boracay’s own Ati-atihan celebration which will be held this January 13, Sunday.

Salme also mentioned that the Management of Kalibo Ati-atihan once asked for their assistance in encouraging the tourists to visit and witness the festival.

Kalibo Sto. Nino Ati-atihan Foundation Incorporated or KASAFI Chairman, Albert Menez previously admitted how they were hoping that the tourists in Boracay would take part in their celebration.

However, as the influx of tourists in Boracay increases every year, the opposite is happening with regard to the number of tourists joining in the Kalibo Ati-atihan.

The Ati-atihan in Kalibo this year will be held from January 14 to 19.
