Sarbay Fest is not just dancing the night away or rocking to the bands at play... there's a whole lot of fun activities to look forward to during the day like watching the challenging swim-across-the-bay of professional groups of swimmers from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Its a good 15-kilometer swim relay contest from Tinoto Point in Maasim to Tango Village in Glan, Sarangani. Whew! These guys surely are fit and tough for the challenge.
More Sarbay competitions to watch out for are the lumba bugsay, skimboarding, beach football, beach frisbee exhibition games, beach fair, sand sculpture competition, bay bodies bikini open, and summer night beach party, bancarera, sand sculpture competition, fun bike ride, beach volleyball and concert by the bay. So don't forget to bring your bottled water and your sunblock!
Through these activities, Sarangani shows and makes people be aware of how beautiful, how rich in marine life and how important Sarangani Bay is and encourage people to be advocates in the conservation and protection of Sarangani Bay.
Its partying with a heart :)
