Puerto Princesa celebrates 'Pangalipay sa Baybay' PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 24 April 2008

PUERTO PRINCESA CITY, April 23 (PNA) -- The city government opened the celebration of its 4th “Pangalipay sa Baybay” at the Baywalk in Barangay San Isidro on Tuesday.

The Baywalk (a local version of the Roxas Boulevard in Manila) is an added classic tourist attraction in this city which runs from the border of the city’s bay, particularly from the main port of the fish port.

Overlooking the bay are rows of stores and shop outlets.

Those who are interested in sailing can rent boats and feel the afternoon breeze.

Lovers and friends can also wander around the place until the evening. With the fresh air coming from the sea, people love to go jogging in the early morning.

From being a squatter's area, the bay has evolved into a popular place to visit.

On Tuesday, the city government led by Mayor Edward S. Hagedorn, Vice Mayor Lucilo R. Bayron and the city councilors graced the opening of the annual Pangalipay.

Five days of fun and excitement are to follow with various activities such as: the traditional cock fighting; Palarong Pambansa boxing bout and amateur boxing tournament; competitions such as cheerdance, sing-along, Bulilit Pop Star, chorale singing, body building, "Danzlam", fashion show, dance sport, Battle of the Bands and 60 Seconds to Fame.

Hagedorn formally opened the program with an amazing fireworks display.

The Pangalipay was first celebrated in April 2005, through the efforts of “Action Man” Vice Mayor Bayron. (PNA)
