Mapandan Public Auditorium
Mapandan Public Auditorium
Despite the heavy rains before the show started, the townspeople of Mapandan couldn't be stopped from watching one of the town fiesta's highlights - the first ever Invitational Bikini Open, organized and sponsored by the Mapandan Gay Association (MAGAYA).
The Mapandanians patiently waited for almost an hour until the rain finally stopped.
|All are set for the much-awaited Bikini Contest.|
|The event was hosted by ABS-CBN My Only Radio DJ Kiko Yam, also a proud Mapandanian.|

The Amazing Gays' grand production number opened the event, simultaneously followed by the introduction of the lovely female and hunky male candidates.
Candidates were from the neighboring towns and cities such as Dagupan, Urdaneta, Baguio, La Union, and even Pasay. There were also candidates who represented Mapandan.
The sexy ladies and gents confidently strut their various bikinis. They did the ramp with their Broadway Bikinis, White Bikinis, Fashionista Bikinis, Safari Bikinis, and lastly, the Bikini of their Choice (which made the auditorium even hotter with the candidates most daring bikinis!). I also realized that the male candidates were actually more daring as they also take more time on stage! Mas matagal sila mag-moment sa stage eh!

|Pilipinas Got Talent contestant Francheska from Barangay Pias also had his/her entertaining numbers.|
|Although I find this intermission a bit odd (a kid sings in an adult pageant), this Mapandanian kid really has talent.|

|Most Amazing Male Body Winner - from Malasiqui|
|Most Amazing Female Body Winner - from Bugallon|
Who says 13 is a bad number? Well, not for these two as they both emerged victorious!
Here are the proud Mapandanians who gamely represented our beloved town. Apologies though for the low quality as I didn't actually plan to have this post before going to the show. I just realized that I have to when I was already watching it! :)
