Chaired by Mayor Salvacion Azarcon, the Surfing Festival Steering Committee held a meeting on Monday, September 16, 2013 in preparation for the 11th celebration of the said festival this November.
The committee tackled primarily the estimated budget earmarked for the celebration. Mayor Azarcon openly discussed that this year’s budget for the festival is very minimal, following the lessons brought by the previous celebrations.
Nonetheless, Mayor Azarcon remained determined to pursue the celebration of the Surfing Festival since, according to her, “it [Surfing Festival] makes Lanuza known all over the country”.
This year’s Surfing Festival calls for the Men and Wahine Long Board Competition only with a total cash prize of P165,000. It is also celebrated side by side with the Ms. Surfin’ Festival 2013 and the Agri-Aqua Trade Fair to be participated by all the barangays in the Municipality.
