Kanidugan Festival 2023: Batch Night

The town fiesta celebration or the Kanidugan Festival this year was moved to April 10, to make way for the holy week, but the celebration started already on April 1 through the opening of the Agri Trade Fair and Agency night in the evening, followed by the Barangay Night and the finals of Odiongan Got a Talent on April 2.

On April 3, there was a Paraw Regatta and Asi Poem and Song Contest on the coast of Tabing-Dagat, but unfortunately, I was not able to see it, because we worked and were busy preparing the Odiongan Plaza for the Batch Night.  VM was the organizer, so the Legislative was in charge of everything, it took us one whole day to prepare and arrange the tables and chairs, because of many changes.  It was almost six in the evening when I decided to go home and prepare for the evening, We were requested to attend and help and I was designated to be one of the usherettes of the event.

I wasn’t able to eat dinner anymore, because when I went home I immediately did the household chores, fed my cats, and took a bath. When, I checked my phone a co-worker was already looking for us, usherettes, because people were already arriving, so I immediately asked my sister to transport me to town.

The event was jumped-packed, it was full of people. It was actually tiring ushering people to their tables and friends, especially since some visitors didn’t want to do the shortcut because they were too shy to pass by other batches or tables, and I had to walk a longer distance so I could bring them to their table, and whenever I have a chance I visited the table of my own batchmates, sit there for few minutes, took pictures and move back to the gate to guide new people.

The main attraction of the event was the performance of four different bands, It was a night full of fun and laughter, seeing each other brought back old memories, and I felt busy and happy seeing old classmates, I forgot to take pictures of the said event, haha.
