Sharing: Capiznons’ way of life

ROXAS CITY, CAPIZ – Sharing as a way of life for Capiznons once again takes center stage as the Province and City jointly hold the Sinadya sa Halaran 2010 on Dec. 3-8. under the theme Pag-ambitanay, Pagkinalipay, Pagpapasalamat."

Sharing is the rationale behind the concept of Halaran, which is a Hiligaynon word for offering. Halaran was first launched in 1975 as a cultural festival that recalls the landing of the 10 Bornean datus in the island of Panay.

From its pagan ritual presentations, the festival has evolved into a Christian-based mardi-gras still anchored on the values of love, sharing and thanksgiving.

The joint Sinadya sa Halaran also brings out the best in Capiznons, particularly their most cherished values of thanksgiving and looking back to their roots or past.

Gov. Victor Tanco and Mayor Angel Alan Celino have agreed to pool the Province’s and City’s resources together to come up with a festival par excellence.

The festival is seen as an embodiment of the Capiznon’s religiosity and their high regard towards their Creator as well as their veneration to the Blessed Virgin Mary as their Patronesss.

Capiz is a surplus producer of palay and various kinds of seafood products.  The Province, which lies along the strong nautical highway in the country’s western seaboard, has been recognized as the "Seafood Capital of the Philippines."

One of the country’s oldest Spanish settlements, the Province is also home to one of the world’s biggest bells found in Sta. Monica Church in Panay towon in Capiz.

Capiz also boasts of beautiful beaches and scenic inland destinations, including caves and waterfall.  Likewise, the Provinve gave the country Manuel Acuña –Roxas, the First President of the Philippine Republic and Last President of the Commonwealth.
