Siloy Festival on Aliwan Festival 2009

April 21, 2009


Siloy Festival Alcoy Cebu

The municipality of Alcoy in the southeastern part of the province of Cebu derives most of its income from the Dolomite Mines, which are the biggest in the world. But Alcoy is also home to the Mag-abo Forest where reside the Black Shama – or Siloy — a type of bird that sings a very soothing melody. With its natural habitat now designated as an ornithologist’s dream destination, the Siloy’s rapidly diminishing population is being zealously conserved not just as a symbol but as a cause. The festival in its name is held on the feast day of Sta Rosa de Lima, whose intercession is invoked by the residents to protect Alcoy’s eco-tourism program.

What you're saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I'm sure you'll reach so many people with what you've got to say.
