BCWD UPDATE May 19, 2019

Butuan City Water Districts (BCWD) joins today’s celebration of the Balanghai Festival with its Balanghai Float #4, depicting this year’s theme “Ancient Kingdom Revealed.”

The Balanghai is a cultural heritage that establishes Butuan’s maritime activities long before the Chinese and other Asian countries sailed the high seas. The Balanghai Boat was used for trade and barter as well as warfare. As such, the Balanghai is a symbol of Butuan’s ingenuity and advanced way of living during ancient times making Butuan an ancient kingdom more developed than the rest of its neighbors —- a royalty among the rest.

BCWD’s Balanghai Boat is a symbol of this majestic era. Aside from that it also symbolizes the present development of Butuan which like the ancient Butuan is also starting to advance more than the rest of its neighbors.
