3rd Oktubafest 2010!
An Waray Party-list once again produced this year’s tuba festival, aptly billed as the “3rd Oktubafest” last October 23 at the Leyte Park Convention Center, Tacloban City.
Hatched as part of the continuing efforts to promote the region’s cultural heritage and the coconut and the tuba industry in Eastern Visayas, the Octubafest showcased the local coconut wine, tuba.
The day-long affair also featured a photo essay contest, the on-the-spot kawit (tuba container) painting contest, a tuba wine tasting contest, a cooking contest featuring tuba-infused dish and kotil and several other entertainment numbers.
The festival saw the participation of several municipalities from all over Eastern Visayas with their respective tuba exhibit booths.
