PANGASINAN celebrated the month long foundation festivity with excellence and creativity. It is a festival that combined tradition and modern work of arts and culture. It depicts uniqueness in terms of how Pangasinenses preserved their cultural heritage and adopted the modern essence of development and progressiveness.
Once again MX3 and GMA Network join the celebration in providing entertainment through games and gift-giving for Pangasinenses. The yearly festivity of the Bangus Festival and Pista’y Dayat Festival is set to promote the Province’s Cultural identity.
Bangus Festival is the celebration of the bountiful harvest of Bangus in Dagupan City. The celebration is one of the Philippines’ grandest Festivals that created a mark of culture for a global reputation of tastiest milkfish. It culminated at the De Venecia Extension Road in Dagupan City with GMA Kapuso stars Dennis Trillo, Tom Rodriguez and Kris Bernal serenaded during the Kapuso Night.
Pistay Dayat Festival on the other hand is a thanksgiving celebration for an abundant fishing industry in Lingayen that culminated at the Capitol Plaza. The Kapuso affair was graced by the “Once Upon a Kiss” Soap Opera love team: Miguel Tanfelix and Bianca Umali. The presence of GMA Star Lovi Poe added much attention to the celebration.
Happiness marked the faces of many Pangasinenses receiving MX3 product samples. All participating players of MX3 Game received MX3 gift bags. The MX3 Grand winner could not contain his happiness and thanksgiving upon receiving the grand prize.
The success of the Festival was a sign of success in line with the Province’s Vision: Pangasinan is the best place to invest, work, live and raise a family. Indeed, a place worth seeing and visiting.
