|Gilon-Gilon Street Dancing|
Gilon-Gilon, which literally means as rich fish harvest, is one of the highlights of the month-long Bangus Festival. This features contestant from the 31 different barangays of Dagupan City dancing around its streets in colorful costumes centered on the city's main attraction, the Bangus (Milkfish).
Check out some of my photos last year. Hoping this year I'll have another free pass to shoot more close-ups =)
The Gilon-Gilon street dancing is scheduled to kick-off on April 28, 2012. Unless you guys is on a month-long vacation and stay for the duration of the festival, I suggest you check out the official schedule of the Bangus Festival 2012 below to plan your stay here. To get to the festival you just need to take a bus (Victory liner or 5-Star) in the direction of Dagupan. Daily trips every hour. So guys if you are planning a visit to Philippines and wish to get a real feel of the country’s culture and traditions then April will be the best time for it.
