Get Ready for Partakan Festival 2017

It’s going to be another hot and exciting summer as motorcycle and car enthusiasts together with their families converge on unscathed beach 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.

This is similar to the Amazing Race TV series where a team of 5 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 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 winner is the one with the fastest time within a specific category and distance.

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 120 branches nationwide, in cooperation with Business Mirror, Philippine Graphic, Health & Fitness, Philippine Locale, and Pilipino Mirror. Online media partners are When In Manila, Health Frontiers and More, Out of Town Blog, PBNet, and Earthlingorgeous.
