The city of Surigao and the province of Surigao del Norte once again celebrated its annual convergence of festivals, the Bonok-bonok Maradjaw Karadjaw Festival Tuesday, September 9, 2008.

In this year's festival, nine contingents from the different parts of Mindanao joined, to which Surigao West Elementary School astoundingly out-done the other eight contingents and emerged as the over-all champion receiving a cash prize of P250,000.00 plus trophy.

First runner-up was the contingent from the Municipality of Gen. Luna receiving the cash price of P200,000.00 plus trophy; Second runner-up was from the Municipality of Jabonga, Agusan del Norte with the cash price of P150,000.00 plus trophy and third runner-up went to the Surigao del Norte National High School with the cash price of P100,000.00 plus trophy.

Meanwhile, special awards for Best in Costume, Best in Street Dancing and Best in Choreography all went to Surigao West Central Elementary School. Best in Instrumentality went to the Municipality of Jabonga. Each special award received P10,000.

Consolation prices were also given in the amount of P10,000.00 cash and a plaque of recognition to the participating contingents from Gingoog City, Misamis Oriental, St. Jude Thaddeus Institute of Technology, Municipality of Cantilan, Surigao del Sur and Butuan City.

While, Karilagan Dance Society from Canada performed in the event as guest performer.

The Bonok-Bonok Festival is a street-dancing contest held every year in honor of Surigao City's patron saint, San Nicolas de Tolentino. The event was indeed worth remembering affair for the Surigaonons for it was the fourth time to have regional contingents. (PIA-Surigao del Norte)
