MetadataShow full item record
For the people of Pangasinan, merry-making is also a unique opportunity to pitch environmental protection concerns. This is what they do at Pistay Dayat, a traditional annual summertime festival held recently at Lingayen Gulf, one of the country’s biggest bodies of water. The 206-kilometer Agno River, whose headwaters emanate from the Cordillera Mountain ranges, is the country’s largest river in terms of water discharge, draining around 6.6 cubic kilometers of fresh water into the Lingayen Gulf.
