Mayor Ricardo De San Jose Comprehensive High School (MRCHS) grabbed the limelight in the Street Dance Competition at the just-concluded 2016 Kabinnulig Festival with a semblance of native Apayao culture and traditional costumes.
All contestants from the four secondary schools of Flora stuck with the theme of the annual Kabinnulig Festival using carabao images and farming activities such as planting of rice during their performances.
The Ricardians at one point carried a bahay kubo depicting the cooperative style bayanihan system of the olden days and other colorful acts and props.
With their effort, the Ricardians received the top prize of P20,000.
The other schools, St. Joseph,s High School (SJS), Allig National Arts and Trades High School (ANATHS) and Flora National High School (FNHS) received P10,000 each as consolation prizes.
The competition was one of the main highlights during the final day of Flora’s celebration of its 53rd founding anniversary following the swearing-in ceremonies for the new set of elected public officials of the municipality.
The day’s activities drew a huge crowd despite the extremely hot condition of the Dr. Efren U. De San Jose Memorial Sports Center.
