De La Salle Lipa (DLSL), once again, won first place in the Contest of Floats during the Lipa City Fiesta 2018, January 20.
In second place was the Lipa City Colleges while third was SM City Lipa.
Anchored on the theme “Masaganang Alay kay San Sebastian: Buhay Pananampalataya ng Sambayanan”, DLSL’s float (“Boat of Good Harvest”) depicted a bountiful harvest with multi-colored crates of fruits, flowers and lush vegetation; the statue of St. Sebastian; and the Cathedral of St. Sebastian. Students in Camisa de Chino and Filipiniana dress rode on the float – projecting a festive and warm ambience as they gave out candies to float watchers on the side.
DLSL’s float was conceptualized and designed by DLSL Arts Coordinator Mr. Rogger Basco, with assistance from the General Services Department and the Strategy and Advancement staff.
Floats were judged based on the design’s innovative concept and artistic merits, quality of craftsmanship, stability of structure and decoration, choice and creativity of materials, symbolism, and overall impact.
