Bangus Harvest Festival

I think this is not another addition to the increasing numbers of festivals in Aurora. The Bangus Harvest festival was organized by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources and the Provincial government of Aurora to celebrate the initial harvest of the bangus (milkfish) farm that was set up last August near the Baler fish port. It was a pilot project to see if bangus farming is feasible in Baler. The result was very encouraging as testified by the 95% survival rate of the fishes and the amount of harvest which is more than 7 metric tons of bangus galore. So Aurora is off to challenge Pangasinan as Luzon’s bangus capital with plans of setting up more milkfish farms in Baler and Casiguran. This whole day event on the day of the arrival of Typhoon Reming was a real festive one, with live bands, street dancers, exhibits, and free bangus for everyone. All the catch were given away to the participants with the Governor herself handing out the goodies.
