Overview of Camiguin Lanzones Festival

Lanzones Festival is held every third week of October and it is a four day grand celebration of the Lanzones fruit. The most important livelihood in Camiguin is Lanzones. It is when a lot of tourists come to witness the joyous Lanzones festival.

Lanzones is one of the major fruit producers in the Philippines. Lanzones is a tropical fruit that grows extravagantly on the north-central coast of Mindanao. Lanzones has a pale brown skin and sweet translucent flesh. It is said that the sweetest Lanzones in the Philippines comes from Camiguin.

Lanzones Festival in Mambadjao Camiguin is celebrated with a weekend street dancing competition and parties, cultural shows, parade and beauty pageant (coronation of Mutya sa Buahanan) and trade fair that features local handicraft and products. Houses, street poles and even people are ornamented with Lanzones during the Lanzones Festival.

According to legends, an unknown beautiful maiden took the fruit’s past bitter flavor to replace it to delicious and sweet taste of the Lanzones, thus townsfolk dance in the streets to honor and celebrate. It also celebrated by the people in Camiguin as a contribution in making Mindanao as a cultural tourism destination and to give thanks for a bountiful harvest for all the agricultural products.

Kay J. wrote about Valle Verde Mountain Resort:

"Valle Verde Mountain Resort is not your usual resort. You would be surprised to experience the beauty of nature where you do not have to go anywhere else, but all in one place. The relaxing spring, the beautiful gardens, the breathtaking views of the Lawi Bay, and the wonderful sunset will leave you in awe. The sights and sounds at Valle Verde will stay with you that you will always want to come back. Thanks to Cristy, the owner who was so accommodating and made our stay an enlightening one.
