DAGUPAN CITY-  Print, broadcast and online reporters joined hands and signed a manifesto of support  to Bayambang’s bid to break the longest barbecue in the Guinness Book of World Records set by M1 shopping Center in Turkey.
 The signing was held after Municipal Mayor Ricardo M.Camacho led the formal launching of the TV and radio commercial of the town’s 400 years celebration to be highlighted by the Malangsi Fishtival.
Camacho, the chairman of the Malangsi Fishtival for five consecutive years since its conception in 2009, said this challenge to break a new world record  was one of the greatest challenges the town received, but will help the town in making another historical event.
He said 400 years ago thetown became the  seat of the 5th Republic as assigned by General Emilio Aguinaldo in 1899.
We will create another phase of history,this time a history that will focus on what Bayambang has to offer, he said.
The mayor explained that this event is very significant as it falls on the town’s 400th year, this is why this years’ celebration is dubbed as Quadri-Centennial.
Headed by Dr.Henry J. Fernandez, he said the committee has laid a month long of festivity with all usual events  made extra special.
Camacho said the municipality was used to party in just a kilometer street party  for four years now and the bid to beat the more than six kilometers grill of Turkey by holding more than seven  kilometer grill  in 2014 is one of the grandest party in the world and one of the legacies he can contribute to his town.
However, this task is only doable if the people in my town will work together in one united effort, he said.
 It was learned that several men and women behind the technical committee of Guinness record holder of longest barbecue, Dagupan City in 2004, and the corn festival which also won  in the same Guinness category in 2008 dubbed as corn festival of Sto.Tomas towne, are among the technical consultant in next years’ Malangsi Fishtival.
Banner materials presented as the events’ first batch of TV and radio ads include the Be Seen Be Heard Be There materials, showcasing the best tourists destination of Bayambang  like the Mangabul Lake. Also featured are the best festivities in Bayambang and its smiling people, the best products in parade during the Farmer’s day, the colorful faces and costumes during the annual street parade and many more.
Another material titled Amazing Bayambang shows how historically amazing Bayambang was during the late 1800’s.
Some of those who signed the Manifesto were Pangasinan Union of News paper Publishers president Celso Manuel of Country Mail, USATV TV host and Northern Bulletin Publisher Jessie Perez, Northern Times Publisher and businesswoman Lelia Chua Sy, KBP Pangasinan Chapter President and DZRD Station manager Jay Mendoza, Provincial Press Clubs President and DWIZ station manager Allan Sison, Veteran broadcaster Orly Navarro of Home Radio, Manila Star correspondent Minnie Caburnay, Bombo radio reporter Frammy Sabado and top rated FM stations headed by HOT FM station manager Marc Ignacio and many more.
 The occasion was also followed by a formal signing of Media partnership which includes radio station, local newspapers, cable stations and regional network stations of giant TV stations.
 Publishers of the local print media and the station managers of each stations assured the local government of  straight news and balanced reportage which include blow by blow coverage of the events will be shared as their support to help the locality in this goal.
 Meanwhile, Camacho also announced that a media bureau will be open for legitimate media who will be covering the events.(Janice Hidalgo)
