Sablan marks 4th Fruit Festival in abundance, friendship, beauty
by PIA-Benguet

Sablan, tagged as the “Fruit Basket of Benguet,” is set to stage its 4th Fruit Festival with the theme, “Celebrating abundance, friendship, and beauty.”

Mayor Arthur Baldo said the event will push through because fruits are in season during this period.

Department of Agriculture OIC Director Cameron Odsey was invited as guest of honor and speaker during the opening program, today, Sept. 2. Also expected to grace the event are  delegates from the town’s sister municipality of Agat, Guam, Territory of the United States of America led by Mayor Kevin James Susuico.

The festival will showcase fruits grown in the town such as pineapple, native guyabano, papaya, rambutan, lanzones, jackfruit, red and white dragon fruit, red and white pomelo, cucumber, and banana.

It will be capped by the large platter of fresh fruits called “Fresh Fruit Medley” which shall be offered to the public for free.

Agricultural Technologist Arthur Mariano said there might be a slight variation on the type of fruit and the volume to be served depending on the availability of the produce as harvest was affected by the bad weather.

He said another highlight is the launching of the festival’s mascot.

The activities include “Fruity Float Parade” to be participated in by privately owned companies, followed by the opening of a three-day agro-trade fair along the stretch of the highway fronting the satellite markets simultaneously with the wall-painting and poster-making contest.

The search for the first Mr. and Miss Sablan Fruit Festival will be held tonight.

Fruit processing and other related competitions will be held on Sept. 3, including contact sports called “Road to gold: Boxing and Muay Thai showdown” in the afternoon.

The celebration of the Fruit Festival from Sept. 2 to 4 is anchored on Ordinance 16-01.
