Bangus Festival in Dagupan

I had a chance to explore Bangus festival, an annual festivity that kicks off every month of April in Dagupan City, Pangasinan. The fiesta highlights the province's Bonuan bangus famous for its unique taste. We arrived around 5p.m. taking us an hour to find an inn as most of the hotels were fully booked due to festivity which ends on the last day of this month. While trying to organize my thought what we should do, most of the time we had some walks along the main streets of the city.

The main source of our dinner is the street foods and some of these vendors prepare barbecues as they have been waiting for the highlight of the festivity lasts the following day. Then we had coffee at the shop close to the inn where we checked in.

We left the city at two in the morning without having witnessed the most important part of the event - the bangus parade, as we have some commitments in the next period of time. The stint in Dagupan fell us short as the plan was not organized well prior to visiting the place.
