 BAYAMBANG- This agricultural town in the third district of Pangasinan has joined the towns of Mangaldan and Calasiao in cancelling the annual fiesta celebration.

This after the Pista’y Baley 2020 Committee has decided to not pursue the fiesta celebration due to COVID-19 that continuously affect various countries including the Philippines.

“ This is a difficult decision but we are looking  after the health and welfare of the Bayambangueños. We have been preparing for the celebration for months, so it is with a heavy heart that we have come to this decision,” the Committee announced in the town’s Facebook account Balon Bayambang.

 The local government headed by Mayor Cesar T. Quiambao has however assured the townspeople that there are “no recorded cases of COID-19” in the town.

“ We are doing everything to make it stay that way. We advised you to practice proper hygiene by regularly washing your hands and using alcohol,” Mayor Quiambao said.

The P5 million donations from the Kasama Kita sa Barangay Foundation Inc. intended for the fiesta celebration will be used as a seed money to start a revolutionary fund  for the town’s Poverty Reduction Plan.
