Munti attempts longest boodle fight line today
To celebrate its 100th Founding Anniversary, Muntinlupa City will attempt to form the longest boodle fight line today, lining up all eight of its barangays.
City Administrator Allan Cachuela, the Muntinlupa Centennial Commission chairman, said the boodle fight will run 11 kilometers from Barangay Tunasan up to Barangay Sucat, the city’s endpoints.
Cachuela added that the event is free and everyone is welcome to join.
“It is high time that Muntinlupa organizes this boodle fight in celebration of the Centennial Anniversary to welcome the festivity as one people,” he noted.
Muntinlupa Public Information Officer Tez Navarro said even though the boodle fight will be marked as a record-breaking attempt, the city government did not apply for any recognition from the Guinness Book of World Records.
Navarro added that the purpose of organizing the event is to promote camaraderie, unity, and volunteerism among Muntinlupeños in the celebration of its centennial.
Homeowners associations, community groups, and members of the private sector pledged to help set up tables and contribute food.
Filipino food will be served, including adobo, tilapia, and other delicacies. Mayor Jaime Fresnedi, Rep. Ruffy Biazon, and local officials will be eating with residents in the boodle fight.
The Centennial Boodle Fight will be lined up in the secondary streets of Barangays Tunasan, Poblacion, Putatan, Bayanan, Alabang, Cupang, Buli, and Sucat.
Everyone is encouraged to wear white in the boodle fight that will start at 6 a.m.
Muntinlupa Traffic Management Bureau advised motorists traversing the streets noted to find alternative routes during the program.
