Francis Tolentino: Festivals show Filipino creativity

May 17, 2018 @ 18:19

Former Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Francis Tolentino said local festivals highlight the creativity of Filipinos.

The Cavite politiko was invited by Dagupan City Mayor Belen Fernandez to attend the recent Bangus Festival celebration.

Tolentino said the Bangus Festival unifies the people of Dagupan.

“Para sa anupamang kadahilanan kung bakit ipinagdiriwang ang mga ito —maaaring dahil sa pasasalamat gaya ng Pahiyas ng Lucban o dahil sa pagbibida ng mga lokal na produkto gaya ng Bangus Festival sa Dagupan — ang mga selebrasyong ito ay nagpapatunay ng pagiging malikhain ng mga Pilipino,” he said.

“Ang pagdiriwang ng Dagupan City ng taunang Bangus Festival tuwing buwan ng Abril ay hindi lamang naglalayong ipagmalaki ang kagandahan ng mga produkto nitong bangus; ito ay naglalayon ding patatagin ang samahan ng bawat miyembro ng komunidad,” Tolentino added.

The defeated senatorial candidate also lauded the Pangasinan politiko for the successful event.
