    The province has also so much to offer to both foreign and local tourists like the breathtaking view of the Laguna Lake and the Sierra Madre mountain ranges. People residing in the 14 towns which today compose Rizal engage in traditional arts and crafts, and hold colorful yearly fiestas that function as accessible major attractions.

    Its strategic geographical location makes it one of the fastest growing provinces in the CALABARZON in terms of economic development. The province was named in honor of the country's national hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal.

    In the early 90's the province gained sudden prominence worldwide with the discovery of the Petrolyph Artifacts in the mountainsides of Angono and Binangonan.

    The petrolyphs are considered remmants of the stone age which were carved by hand and mortar as a unique form of "rock-art." The discovery led art observers to theorize that thse towns possess some kind of a mystique for having given ascendancy to a lineage of natural-born artists. The Department of Tourism and the Commission on Culture and the Arts have teamed up to preserved the site and protect what remains of the blocks.

    Todays, world-class artist and painters continue to be spawned by Angono and Binangonan, close to the very sites where the petroglyphs were unearthed. However farfetched, it is easy to assume that the predisposition toward visual arts and the indigenous creativity of the people raised within the lakeshore communities, is a priceless inheritance for countless of generations. Some of the art luminaries spawned by the province are Vicente Manansala, Carlos "Botong" Francisco, Nemiranda, and the Jose Blanco family of painters. In this regards, not to be missed in the Rizal tourist itinerary are the Blanco, Nemiranda and other private artists' galleries and the Angono Artists' Village.

    Angono is equally famous for its Carabao Festival held in May during the feast of San Isidro Labrador. Rizal is also a nearby picnic ground for Metro Manila. Talim Island, a swim and picnic spot situated in Laguna Lake has excellent potentials for further development.

    The province of Rizal has lately assumed the title of being the Convention and Conference Center of many clients from Metro-Manila business, commerial and social service entities. A number of religious houses have sprouted for the benefit of spiritual retreat in search of a nearby yet conductive venue. Thse facilties can be found in Antipolo and Binangonan which offer good accomodations, refreshing pools, and gournet-wise, dining specialities sourced from water ponds.

    A stellar attraction of Rizal is its fabled Lenten rituals in the town of Cainta which turns out stage presentations of the Senakulo performed by folk theater artists for a series of evenings during Holy Week. The Good Friday parade of the Crucifixion replete with horse-riding Roman soldiers and characters of the New Testament, and the famous month-long Pilgrimage to the Image of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage for the whole month of May in Cathedral of Antipolo. The multiplicity of stalls that selling local handicrafts, hot cashew nuts, native rice pastries and freshly-picked duhat (local blackberry) surround the church grounds at this time. An industrial center is now on the rise in the town of Tanay, over a 328-hectare lot. It is expected to locate medium to large-scale industries, and to pave the way toward an alternative eastern growth corridor involving the provinces of Rizal, Laguna Quezon.

    A visit to an old town, a tour of the early Spanish centuries-old churches and artists' galleries, shopping for native products, delicasies, fruits and fresh fish from nearby fruit orchards and lakeshore fishermen - all these tour possibilities would create new touring patterns for local and international vacationers.

Making a Kite

Flying a kite is good exercise and a lot of fun (even if you don’t get the kite up in the air). Instead of going out and buying a kite, make one instead. You will need fabric (or very
strong paper), strong glue, two wooden dowels and string.

To begin, lay the two dowels in a cross position and use some of the string to lash the sticks together into that position. You will do this by weaving the string in and out of the
dowels. Once the dowels are secure, put glue on the string and leave it to dry. Once this is done you should have a strong frame for your kite. Making a Kite
