It’s going to be another hot and exciting summer as motorcycle and car enthusiasts, together with their families, converge on the pristine Aguib Beach in Sta. Ana, Cagayan, for the annual Partakan Festival on April 14 – 15, 2017.
Now on its fourth year, the two-day ride and rock fest is a celebration of the brotherhood, passion, and freedom that everyone can enjoy. It is expected to bring together thousands of motorcycle and car enthusiasts as they compete in several exciting and thrilling activities, including a chance to win P20,000 in the Amazing Ride Moto-Tourism Challenge.
The Amazing Ride
This is similar to the TV series Amazing Race where a team of five members must complete challenges in different locations designated by the Department of Tourism. The contest is open to riders, commuters, clubs, family members, backpackers, or a group of friends. Participants can start their ride anytime any day from April 12 – 15, 2017. It is not a time-bound competition; the team with the highest number of points will be declared as the winner. The Amazing Ride is designed to promote tourism, camaraderie, and family bonding.
Aside from the Amazing Ride, participants can also compete in the Auto/Moto Speed Challenge and the Bailout Challenge. The former is a time-based motorcycle and automobile drag race competition in a controlled environment. The participant with the fastest time within a specific category and distance wins the challenge.
The Bailout Challenge
The Bailout Challenge, on the other hand, is patterned after the hit TV series Wipe Out and will test the strength, intelligence, and patience of participants.
Other highlights of the event are the Battle of the Bands concert, Summer ReVibe Hip Hop Dance Showdown, and the Partakan Summer Bod Swimsuit Competition. Aside from P20,000, other great prizes await the lucky winners and a motorcycle will be raffled off.
The Partakan Festival is sponsored by Ropali Motorcycles, one of the biggest motorcycle dealers in the country with more than 120 branches nationwide. For more information and to register, visit www.partakan.com and like Partakan Festival on Facebook.
I’m a person of simple tastes and wants. All I’ve ever wanted since I was 12 was to have my own room where I can display my notebook collection. When I was 16, I was content to stay in bed and write in my journal. At 22, I thought I needed nothing more than classical music and a bowl of spaghetti.
