Last Sunday, on my way home, I passed by the century-old Capiz bridge that spans across the Panay River. It was the last day of Capiztahan 2012, a three-day celebration marking the 111th Foundation Day of Capiz as a separate province (from Aklan). The bridge was unusually full that day …
Only to find out that there was a scheduled “Baroto Race“, a small boat (banca) race for the fishermen of Roxas City. It was a succesful event organized last year by a local radio station, and so they mounted another one this year.
Unfortunately I had to catch a 10:00am sunday mass, so I didn’t stay long enough to witness the race itself. Maybe next year, I will. I might even hitch a free ride!
