It’s confirmed. The Sagada Genuine Guides Assocation (SAGGAS) will be once again organizing the annual Sagada Bonfire on December 28, 2012. This has become some sort of tradition for the organization and a handful of Sagadaholics who make the pilgrimage to town just to mark this momentous event. Hundreds of people make their way to a clearing just outside the town proper to revel through the night with traditional music and scrumptious food as prepared by the Sagada guides themselves.
Admission to the bonfire is just for P250 and this can be settled at the SAGGAS main office near Yoghurt House. This includes the transportation, food, drinks and entertainment for the party. The money that will be generated from this effort will be used by SAGGAS for their projects for the following year. I have personally been to three of these bonfires and I have no intention of missing one as much as possible!
What: Sagada Bonfire
When: December 28, 2012
Where: Mt. Langtiw (same as last year) – this is near the caves. Don’t worry about getting here, the organizers will handle the transportation to and from the venue as always.
IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO GO TO SAGADA DURING THIS VERY BUSY TIME, BOOK YOUR ROOMS NOW. This will save you a lot of hassle later on.
