Eighteen beautiful women from Lapu-Lapu City will vie for the crown of Binibining Lapu-Lapu 2022.
The official candidates were introduced during the press conference and sashing ceremony on October 26 at the Waterfront Airport Hotel Mactan.
This pageant was an initiative of Pajo Barangay Councilor and Chairperson of Binibining Lapu-Lapu 2022, Jasmine “Daday” Chan, as part of the set of activities in celebration of Fiesta sa Opon 2022.
Hon. Jasmine Chan was delighted and proud that the Binibining Lapu-Lapu pageant is back after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
She said that the comeback of the pageant has been made more prestigious than ever with the support of the local government of Lapu-Lapu City.
“We have partnered with great venues that will showcase the beauty of Lapu-Lapu City and we prepared activities that will truly bring out the best of our 18 gorgeous candidates,” Jasmine said during her speech.
Aside from their beauty, the candidates proved that they also possess wit in answering questions during the open forum. They all have various advocacies on social issues and current affairs, including mental health awareness, cyberbullying, sexual harassment among women, and many more.
The Binibining Lapu-Lapu 2022 has rebranded to focus on promoting the tourism industry of the city and to compete with other grand pageants.
Together with its rebranding comes a new logo, strategically designed with elements that will depict the 500-year Quincentennial celebration in Lapu-Lapu City, the City’s tourist attractions, and a representation of the locals’ creativity.
The overall chairman of the Fiesta Execom 2022, Congresswoman Cindi King-Chan, said that this special pageant is a rebirth of the Binibining Lapu-Lapu after a two-year hiatus that also signifies the recuperation of the tourism industry in the city.
All set of activities of Binibining Lapu-Lapu 2022 is free. The swimwear, evening gown, and costume pre-pageant competition will be on November 16, 2022.
The culmination of the next Bb. Lapu-Lapu 2022 will be on November 20 at the Hoops Dome in Barangay Gun-ob.
