Sarangani cancels Sarbay 2017

GENERAL SANTOS CITY (May 24, 2017) – Sarangani Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon announced the cancellation of Sarbay Fest on Wednesday (May 24) a day before the start of the country’s biggest beach festival.

The cancellation, Solon told a news conference, was to show the provincial government’s support to the declaration of President Rodrigo Duterte Tuesday night placing the whole Mindanao under Martial Law.

“Movements in terms of security have been mobilized to ensure the safety of the festival” but it is on “the moral ground that Sarangani Province cannot celebrate while our brothers in Marawi are distressed,” Solon said.

Sarbay becomes paradise

GLAN, Sarangani (May 23, 2017) – It’s You and Me and Paradise at Sarbay this year.

This concept, according to Region 12 tourism council chair Michelle Lopez Solon, suggests that the presence of Sarbay- goers creates a paradise.

It cannot be denied though that the venue where the fete has been staging for the past 12 years is a piece of paradise at the Southern tip of Mindanao.

Gumasa boasts of a white sand crescent coastline and waters that harbor corals and marine life like giant clams and Dugong (sea cow).
