bangus2It’s been a tradition to celebrate the Bangus Festival in Dagupan City.  Every year the celebration is getting bigger and better.  Bangus Fiesta is celebrated during summer season.  Many guests were attending the celebration .  There were actresses and actors, politicians and even local and foreign tourists who are coming to celebrate with Dagupenos.

Various activities like the biggest Bangus harvest, street dancing, gilon-gilon (along Pantal river)  photo exhibit, battle of the band and the most awaited was the longest Bangus grill which is already included in Guinness World of Record are done.  There were also seminars offered, sharing the process of deboning Bangus and showing the different ways on how to cook Bangus.  Truly an interesting and a learning part of the Bangus Fiesta.

Every night performers from Manila City have a concert at the park to entertain guests especially tourists like me, also you can enjoy shopping at midnight bizaare where different products of Dagupan and nearby towns are being showcase.

I witnessed once the Bangus largest grill during the celebration of Bangus Fiesta where  I took a picture of Mrs. Susan Roces ( wife of late Fernanado Poe, Jr. ) who is one of the special guest.  There were also many different organizations who participated in the world record longest grill along downtown of Dagupan.

Bangus Festival is celebrtated as a thanksgiving for the bountiful harvest of Bangus by Dagupenos during the year.
