Silmugi Festival 2012

January 18 of this year, the search of the Queen of Silmugi Festival 2012 was held at the town plaza of Borbon, Cebu. I was invited by my boyfriend’s cousin to watch Silmugi Queen Festival and the pageant was “bonggacious”! Pardon me for the term but the show was really nice!  I can show you evidence!

The two day Silmugi Festival is a celebration by the residents of Borbon district for the good harvest. I wondered why Borbon’s festival is named Silmugi so I asked my partner’s sisters but they don’t have any idea. Thanks to google and I have the answer from this article. According to oral history, it is named after the Silmugi River located in between the barangays of Poblacion and Cadaruhan. The river played a big part during Borbon’s formulation as a town because in the past, the river was knowned to be so big and wide that a boat travelled by it. That was informative and now I know!
