Baroto Race 2012: Race to Finish

          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 …

Both sides of the bridge was filled with spectators ...

          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.

As well as both iver banks ...

With the young ...

And the seniors too ...

          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!

Waiting for the race to start.
