What a celebration! The whole Tortugas was in uproar as the Barangay Council once again came up with interesting and fun-filled activities for their Barangay Fiesta last 16 January, 2011. Respect was given both to those who celebrated the Feast of Sto. Niño and to the rest who were happy to express and offer their thanksgiving to God who continuously, bountifully blesses them.

For four (4) consecutive years since 2008, the barangay is consistent in lining up various games and contests to the enjoyment of the residents. Punong Barangay Victor A. Baluyot Jr. and his Kagawad never fail to think of exciting gimmicks that would be appreciated by the different age groups in the community.

Several barangay clubs sat down with Punong Barangay Victor A. Baluyot Jr. to offer help thus a weeklong celebration was made possible. This good relationship of the community residents and barangay leaders working together is very productive benefiting everyone.

Leading the fun fare was the Banda 55 who marched around the barangay very early on the eve of the Feast and throughout the Fiesta Day itself.

Prior activities included the following:

Jan. 10,2011 and Jan. 11,2011 – Counterstrike Competition (Mabulate Club)

Jan. 12,2011                                   – Pigeon Racing (Q.C. Voyz Club)
