32nd Caracol 2018 @Makati

A Festivity for Mother Nature....come and join this celebration for a worthy cause. Be counted and at the same time, learn and enjoy!

Makati City will hold this year’s Caracol Festival tomorrow, Sunday, February 25 at theGlobe Circuit Events Grounds in Barangay Carmona, starting at 4pm, according to the cityMuseum and Cultural Affairs Office (MCAO).

Makati Mayor Abby Binay urged the public to come and take part in the revelry which highlights the beauty of nature and the importance of conserving and protecting our natural resources.

Mayor Abby said...
 Caracol, now on its 32nd year, is a significant annual event for Makati. It serves as a constant reminder to our people, especially the young ones, that despite our highly urbanized landscape, we must strive to take care of the environment because our lives and our future depend on it.
 The mayor emphasized that even as the city government has resolved to embrace technology and has taken major steps towards a “digital Makati”, it remains firmly grounded on its commitment to remain at the forefront of global efforts to promote sustainable and highly resilient communities.

Mayor Abby added:
 Caracol Festival is not a mere display of merriment, but an effective tool to heighten public awareness on the urgency of getting our acts together to heal the earth, and to motivate residents and visitors alike into taking an active role in building a healthy and sustainable environment.
 A Spanish term for snailCaracol alludes to the shell people use as shields to life’s harsh realities. During the festival, revelers are encouraged to discard their “shells” and join in the merrymaking and to rejoice in the bounty of Mother Earth.

Mayor Abby also thanked the city’s constant partners in the private sector through the years for consistently supporting the event, namely,Ayala Land, Circuit Makati, Manila Bulletin, and Make it Makati.

The MCAO has confirmed that the festival will start with a parade of participants, barangay officials and residents, city employees, private sector representatives, senior citizens, and students at 4pm, which will be followed by a dance competition.

This year’s highlight will be a dance competition wherein participants are expected to showcase a creative interpretation of different environmental issues.

The competition is divided into three clusters:elementary schools, high schools, and Barangays. For each group, some 30-40 members, excluding musicians and props men, will be performing. For this year, three elementary schools will give their visual interpretation of Endangered Species and dance to the tune of retro or pop, namely, Pitogo Elementary School, Nicanor Garcia Elementary School, and San Antonio Village Elementary School.

Meanwhile, high school students from San Antonio National High School, Makati Science High School and Pitogo High School will perform either Waltz or ballet, clad in flower or insect-inspired costumes. On the other hand, there will be six groups of performers from the Barangays who will imitate marine lifewhile ballroom dancing.

Prizes at stake for each category are as follows: First Place, P150,000 cash prize; Second Place, P125,000; and Third Place, P100,000.

The overall champion will receive P150,000 cash prize.

Special awards will also be given away for Best in Costume and Best in Choreography, with a P50,000-cash prize for each award.

Contestants will be judged according toappearance, creativity in putting the spirit of the festival into performance, originality of design, and actual dance routine performance.

During the parade, judges will choose three winners for Best in Costume, with P50,000 cash prize for first place, P40,000 for second place, and P30,000 for third place.

A separate competition will also be held amongprofessional photographers who will successfully publish their best shots in print media. The Best Photo will win a cash prize of P25,000, while the first and second runners-up will receive P15,000 and P10,000, respectively.

The Caracol Festival is the official festival of Makati City. It is observed every last Sunday of February.

The original concept of the festival was the presentation of three major festivals of the country. In its first eight years, Metro Manila talent groups of SinulogDinagyang and Ati-Atihan were staged in one major event competing for awards. In 1993, to support the global call for the preservation and conservation of our natural resources, a new theme was created and evolved into today’s festivity which mirrors the beauty and bounty of Mother Nature.

Made by the Japanese gaming company Epoch in 1985, Sylvanian Families is a collection of anthropomorphic animal figurines and model sets. Distributed around the world, they have become so popular that there is a growing community here in the Philippines, one that remains strong to this day.

Other communities such as a fanbase for Pokemon have been very lively since the countless adorable critters have been popping out not only in our gaming consoles, but also in our phones, in the form of Pokemon Go. It is not uncommon to see someone throwing virtual Pokeballs at a virtual Pokemon while walking.
Why would you attend FurryPinas 2018?

It is one of the most unique conventions happening this 2018. If you will be attending, then you are among the first to experience this one of a kind event.  Despite being such a unique event, the tickets are also affordable with the basic entry level ticket costing at Php 115 inclusive of a lanyard and a con ID badge (early bird).

That’s not all! Anyone who purchases a ticket will surely get freebies during the event.  FurryPinas 2018 recognizes everyone who supports the event, no matter the type of ticket they buy, but do remember that greater freebies are in store for those who want more.

If you are an artist, designer, cosplayer, a fan of movies, shows, toys, and other content featuring anthro or humanized animals then you would not want to miss this.  This event will bring you various activities and features which you will surely love!

What happens at FurryPinas 2018?

FurryPinas 2018 brings two huge guests in the Furry Hobby.  First is Pocari Roo, an Australian furry fan and full-time YouTuber with over 100 videos on her channel and over 50,000 subscribers. She is primarily known for her Youtube channel where she does vlogs, music videos, how-tos, Q&As, and more, with a family friendly rating and a primary focus on being positive, entertaining, and helpful.

Tanduay Athletics Locked In For Grassroots Basketball

Tanduay Distillers Inc. president Lucio “Bong” Tan, Jr. is taking his support to grassroots sports a step further as he goes on full offensive for Batangas Tanduay Athletics in the new Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL).

Tan, whose passion for basketball was cultivated in childhood, believes he saw a formidable ally in MPBL founder Sen. Manuel Pacquiao in providing opportunities for local talents from the regions to advance their basketball dreams.

“When we formed Tanduay Athletics, we had grassroots youth development as one of its major thrusts. We believe we can give equal opportunities to aspiring basketball talents from the cities and the regions through MPBL,” Tan said.

Each team is required to have at least three players that are homegrown to the area they represent. The MPBL features teams that represent a province, city or municipality in a home-and-away set up, where players get to play in front of hometown fans.

Aside from Batangas Tanduay Athletics, other teams playing for the MPBL include Bataan Defenders, Bulacan Kuyas, Valenzuela Classic, Marikina Athletics, Caloocan Supremos, Navotas Redcore and Muntinlupa.

Tanduay Distillers’ alcohol refinery Absolut Distillers Inc. has been operating for 26 years in Lian, Batangas. It is one of the country’s most advanced distilleries that has received multiple local and international awards for operating on zero waste and employing green practices.

“We put our hope in the next generation to make better their lives and become useful to society. To give meaning to words, we support avenues that will enable them like the MPBL and Batangas is close to home. That makes this endeavor special and worthwhile,” Tan further explained.

MPBL games air every Tuesday, Thursday, and ‪Saturday from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m in ABSCBN Sports and Action.

“We have a very encouraging start with the strong performance of the team. We hope to continue the momentum. But in every league or sport we support, what’s important is how we are making a difference in the lives of the athletes. How they develop as individuals and how they will continue to inspire a nation as an athlete like Manny Pacquiao is why we are here to support,” Tan concluded.

The Batangas-Tanduay Athletics had an early win during a match with Valenzuela Classic and Bataan Defenders as former Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) players Val Acuna and Lester Alvarez lead the way for the new team.

Tanduay Distillers Inc. is a member of the LT Group of Companies. Tanduay is the Philippines’ top rhum maker, which is also distributed in Asia and the United States, among other countries in the world. Likewise, the company produces spirits, wines, brandies, gins, and vodka. We are a registered company in the Philippine stock exchange as a subsidiary of Tanduay Holdings Inc.
