What’s sexier at the celebrated Laoag Sand Dunes than a pumped up night of music? The much anticipated Pamulinawen Sand Tunes Music Festival is finally happening! (Check out poster above.)
Then there’s also the chance to experience Laoag’s signature sand dune adventure for free, courtesy of the Laoag Sand Dunes Coop, in cooperation with the City Government of Laoag.
Save the date, folks… February 21, 2018! Am to Pm!
Happy Fiesta, Laoag!
It’s fiesta season once again in the Ilocos Region. Stumbled upon this poster of Ilocos Sur’s Kannawidan Ylocos Bicentennial celebration schedule of activities on social media and might as well share it with you. Ilocos Sur and its seat of government, Vigan, like to do it customarily grand in their own unique Southern Ilocano way. Kicking off on January 26, with Sun Soaked beach sports competitions and Parokya ni Edgar concert at the beach in Magsingal, the province’s 200 years commemorations will be livened up with a dancing fountain spectacle, art and poetry competitions, Chef Wars, a longganisa eating contest, stamp exhibit, street dancing showdown capped by an Ely Buendia performance, a rodeo parade, a drag race, etc. For more details, visit their websites at the bottom of the poster.
Former National Treasurer Professor Emeritus Leonor Briones of the University of the Philippines National College of Public Administration and Governance will be in Ilocos Norte on July 16, 2015, 1PM, to conduct a public lecture at the MMSU-Batac Teatro ILocandia. The lecture is titled “Balancing Fiscal Autonomy with Responsibility and Accountability“, and delves on the red flags in the financing provisions of the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL). Here’s the chance to ask Prof. Briones relevant topics like the BBL and the 2015 National Budget during the meet-and-greet.
She is bringing with her the Manila Concert Choir to perform in a concert following the lecture. Now on its 63rd year, the Manila Concert Choir explores the power and language of love conveyed through songs in times of conflict and struggle in a performance entitled “Love in the Time of Revolution and War”, in homage to the resilience of the human soul in finding beauty in life’s harshest of times.
An evening gala sponsored by the City Government of Laoag is also slated at the Laoag City Auditorium on July 17, 2015 at 6PM, free of charge.
