After 1 season of inter-town competition, It’s Showtime finally announced today its grand winner for this edition. Staged in It’s Showtime’s studio, the 8 contenders showcased their talents and local pride to capture the judges nod and the ultimate prize of 3 million pesos. And in the end it was Bacolod Maskara who was proclaimed winners of this season’s inter-town edition.
Their festive performance which is patterned to their famous Masskara Festival in Bacolod gave them the edge to get the judges perfect 10 score. The audience can’t help also but to get-up on their feet and cheer for their performance. They are really worthy of the title although I am really rooting for La Castellana Bailes de Luces. Bacolor Masskara went home with their 2 million prize for the performing groups and 1 million pesos for their town.
Another grand finalists includes Olongapo City’s Amazing Paper Dolls, our Laguna’s very own, San Pablo City’s Tiklad, Taytay Rizal’s Infinite Reform, Anda, Pangasinan’s Lahing Anda, Dumaguety City’s Dumaguete’s Pride, Caloocan City’s Next Level Octomix, and my favorite La Castellana Negros Occidental’s La Castellana Bailes de Luces.
What’s good about this edition is it’s promotion of local tourism. I liked how they were able to showcase the local products and tourist attractions of the towns that competed. For that I would say It’s showtime Inter-Town Edition is a success. Department of Tourism must have commended the show for its help for the country’s tourism campaign. Indeed they made us see that It’s really more fun here in the Philippines.
