MINION characters, a snowman, a diorama of St. Peter and Paul’s Parish, a wedding cake and a Christmas tree, all created with famous ‘Puto’ took center stage during the weeklong celebration of Puto Festival here, December 8 to 15.
Verliza Abila, municipal tourism officer, said the annual “Puto Day” aims to promote ‘Puto Calasiao’ and to honor the producers and vendors of the town’s main product.
The competing Puto construction and design pieces will be on display in Robinson’s Mall here until December 15.
A women’s group and students that competed in the ‘Best ways to serve Puto’ alongside the Puto Eating Contest, concocted dishes such as Puto Pizza Con Bangus Delight, Puto con Quezo Empanada, La Putofu dela Sisig, Puto Cake, Puto Pao, Puto Con Siomai; to deserts like Puto Fruit Salad, Crema de Puto and Puto Con Graham.
A Comedy Night is also part of the celebration as a tribute to the vendors and producers of the town, while the latter demonstrated their talents in the Producers/Vendors Got Talent contest.
The town has more than 30 stalls of Puto not including producers and vendors who are marketing their products outside the town. (Hilda Austria)
