we were so privileged that we've witnessed the first Battle of the Morions interpretation competition during the Moriones Festival 2009.one thing that i like about the festival was the tourism booth that provided free detailed tourists information in the form of a booklet. it includes in it the one week schedule of the activities of the whole Festival on the different towns of Marinduque.it made it easier for us to check what we need to witness and activities that we can skip. one activity that we made sure we watched was the Battle of the Morions presentations.the competition allows the participants to perform as a group the reenactment of the Longinus story. it focused more on the beheading of this converted Roman soldier. you can review the story here.four groups from the different towns performed at the town arena. area was filled with people eager to see another event that'll happen for the first time.coming along with each group are their own music group that provided rhythm to the presentation. some came in mardigra beats.it was not yet as impressive, but it was a good start. something that we can look forward to see next year as it thrives.
