The Casiguran Water District sponsored the 3rd Color Fun Run sa Casiguran on September 29, 2018. The run, attended by some 4,000 participants, mostly from the youth sector, was part of the series of events relative to the Celebration of the Town Fiesta of the Municipality of Casiguran, Sorsogon. The event aims among others, to provide healthy recreational activity.
The most anticipated event of the youth actually started at around 5:30 A.M. with a Zumba Dance, serving as the warm-up exercises for participants. During the dance, water cannons, connected to fire hydrants generously made to spew water to the crowd. Color powders were then applied by CWD employees and SK volunteers to the already-wet white shirts of participants.
Participants then run and walk thru the 3K route along Poblacion area of Casiguran, occasionally stopping at the so-called “stop-and-dance” stations manned by Casiguran Technical Vocational School (CTVS) teachers and students. The 5 stations previously set are complete with sound system, where participants are made to stop and dance to the tune of the latest craze in music in the country before they can get through. Thanks to CTVS teachers and students who served as dance motivators and instructors.
