MetadataShow full item record
This town's residents showed their renewed enthusiasm with their all-out support for Saturday's staging of the annual Sigay Festival showcasing the success of the local fishing industry through the simultaneous grilling of seafood products in a grand street party. Mayor Simplicio Rosario, who started the festival in 2010, said the event is a big boost to their aquaculture industry and an opportunity for the townsfolk to showcase their unity and hospitality, which every home displays during fiesta celebrations. With the huge crowd that gathered in the town proper to enjoy a night-long grilling of bangus (milkfish), malaga, prawns, and tilapia that are abundantly produced here, Rosario said there is no doubt that the Sigay Festival's aim to foster a stronger bond among the local folk, vacationing Pangasinenses and visitors was achieved.
