Celebrating bangus and fishermen
MetadataShow full item record
The annual Gilon-Gilon ed Baley street dancing competition, participated in by the 31 barangays of Dagupan City, was held Friday, marking the start of the city’s Bangus Festival, which will culminate with the grand Bangusan Street Party on April 30. This year’s Gilon-Gilon champion was composed of the clustered southern barangays of Caranglaan, Bacayao Norte, Bacayao Sur, Mayombo and Herrero-Perez. Caranglaan Barangay Chairman Teresa T. Coquia, the cluster leader, said she believes that they bested the four other clusters because their street dancers focused on telling the story behind gilon, which means harvesting bangus (milkfish), the city’s most well-known product.
