Getafe umbrellas create new attraction

Picture Bohol and the image of the Chocolate Hills and the Tarsier in mind.

In recent years, Bohol has been coming up with new attractions to reinvent the tourism industry. Bohol is no longer just the Chocolate Hills and the Tarsier, it is more than that and the province is going to provide a boatload of surprises to the tourist.

Take example the umbrellas of Getafe, set up in time for the town fiesta last week.

The colorful umbrellas are suspended in mid-air with thin wire supporting them. The effect makes the umbrellas seem to be floating on air and the parade of umbrellas create a unique experience.

The nicest thing about the “floating umbrellas” is that you can see it for free.

About 1,200 umbrellas replaced the flaglets that used to line up the town during fiestas.

Getafe town officials chose to put the umbrellas as part of the 132nd foundation anniversary of the town.

The parade of umbrellas can help create a shade as town officials plan to put up more umbrellas and add to the collection.

Just recently, a new attraction already caught the attention of the people with almost 20,000 LED flowers lining up Jardin Necitas in Bagumbayan, Pilar.

The two attractions will only bolster the ambition of Bohol to be a tourism powerhouse in the country.
