Various activities have been lined up for Mahin Festival 2014. Some of the highlights include skimboarding, “Oplan Karagatan” – a clean up drive and mangrove planting activity, sugbahan sa baybayon, bancarera (this one’s fun to watch), lumba kabayo sa baybayon, sand sculpture competition, lumba bugsay and lumba langoy. All fun water and sports activities!
