Come March 20th the ladies came out in style wearing chic opening dresses and swimsuits by Jeffrey Rogador, who also thoughtfully directed the whole pageant. They then came out in gowns of their own choosing, all in shades of blue as a tribute to the clear blue seas of San Fernando. At this point the crowd was in awe and the ladies definitely brought their A-game.
A multitude of special awards were given however, the following candidates came out strong and got the following major special awards: 
Best in Swimwear - 19. Anne Margareth Sanglay

Miss Barangay 2017: Anne Margareth Sanglay
1st Runner-up: Cris Doctolero
2nd Runner-up: Angelita Soliven
3rd Runner-up: Alec Alexis Flores

I was able to do a quick interview with the winners and I must say they are more beautiful up-close and just as adept in expressing themselves:  
Kudos to the City of San Fernando LGU and STRAM Inc for a successful event, the winners were beautiful and the entertainment provided by Elmo Magalona, Janella Salvador and Boyband PH kept the crowd going.
The day after the pageant, I was walking on the sands along Poropoint Thunderbird's shores when a couple approached me and excitedly told me " We have a new Miss". I guess that is how they treat their Misses here, as queens. You can definitely tell that these ladies will have the best reign ever and I am already excited for next year hearing them sharing about their wonderful year as queens of the City of San Fernando.

Special thanks to Airwind Bautista of ATIN for making this coverage possible.
