Barangay Iponan: Kalumpangan Festival 2017

Barangay Iponan has been known all over the city because of its progress, hospitable residents and its one of a kind barangay activities and celebrations. Every month of February each year, this time from February 1-10, 2017, Iponan prepares for a 10-day fiesta celebration dedicated to their patron saint, Sr. San Guillermo, as their way of giving back all the blessings and graces from the Lord.

I am again honored to be invited to judge at Barangay Iponan for their Fiesta Activities specifically the Zone Beautification, Arch Making Contest and Queen of Iponan 2017. Iponan is the only barangay that I know who celebrates their fiesta for 10 days.

Behind the success of these activities is the Chairman, Kag. Gaga Brellita, together with the other Barangay Officials. Kag. Gaga is a good friend. I admire his love and passion in what he’s doing to preserve the traditions of Iponan.

It’s not an easy job to make everyone participate where some are willing while some aren’t. But as a leader, you have to motivate the people and do whatever is necessary to make them understand that what their leaders are doing are actually for the people; therefore, they must also do their parts to participate and support.

Some of the other activities were Field Demo, Make Your Move dance clash, open basketball league, open darts tournament and variety shows every night sponsored by all schools in the barangay.
