BANAK FESTIVAL 2012: Mas Masaya sa Sta. Ana


Every year, Barangay Sta. Ana, with its rich culture and wonderful tradition, is celebrating the feast of our patroness St. Anne, most commonly known as Sta. Anang Banak.  This is our way of expressing our deepest gratitude for another abundant and prosperous year, which is an indication of how religious the people of Sta. Ana are.  Centuries ago, people celebrate it with a River Festival where fishermen would toss portion of their fishes to the people beside the river, who in return, would toss back native delicacies, fruits or other products towards the fishermen’s boat.

Last year, collaborating with our Sta. Ana Chapel and some private individuals who showed their support, we celebrated the BANAK FESTIVAL 2011, a 9-day long festivity filled with worthwhile endeavors.  Cooking competition, fun run, photo journalism contest, clean up drives and street dance were only some of activities that brought enjoyment to our ka-Barangays

This year, we are planning to have it bigger than what we had during the previous.   In line with the Department of Tourism’s Campaign, It’s More Fun in the Philippines, this year’s theme will be “BANAK FESTIVAL 2012: Mas Masaya sa Sta. Ana!”  This will be on July 18 – 28, 2012 at various areas and activity halls within the Barangay.
