MAMBAJAO, Camiguin — Not even the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic can stop and dampen the spirits of residents in the province as it will still push the celebration of the annual Lanzones Festival.

Governor Jurdin Romualdo said that while festivities will continue, it will be held virtually and they would also still hold festival-related events despite a smaller volume of lanzones.

He explained that due to erratic weather patterns, they expect an abundant harvest in December or January next year, way beyond the festival season.

Camiguin’s lanzones are considered the sweetest because of the island’s volcanic soil.

“We will still celebrate it to show the people of Camiguin that there is still hope amid the pandemic and low harvest. Even if we have a scant lanzones yield, the spirit of the Lanzones Festival will still be there to keep the morale of the Camiguinons,” Romualdo said.

In its 42nd year, the Lanzones Festival 2021 activities from 24 to 31 October can be viewed through online streaming on social media.
