The second Nipa Festival in El Salvador City in Misamis Oriental was successfully held today, August 13, with Brgy. Casinglot in Tagoloan winning the grand prize of the tableau presentation at the El Salvador City Sports Complex grounds.
2nd place went to Brgy. Carmen in Cagayan de Oro while Brgy. Molugan in El Salvador City placed 3rd. Nipa Festival is derived from Tagnipa, the old name of then El Salvador town, which was coined from the abundance of Nipa Palm in the area.
The contingent from Tagoloan also swept the special awards: Best in Choreography, Best in Musicality, Best in Street Dancing and Best in Costume.
