One of the highlights of Abayan Festival is the Baroto Race, people cheered. "Kadyawa, gau, kadyawa pa katsaong pag-gau ni-yo" motivating baroto contestants to make good with their rowing. Others were shouting: "kampay, kampay" to those who uses hands in rowing in other contest category.

Others aren't lucky enough, still tried their best to keep up.
