Aurora Day 2011 - Valentines Party
Aurora Day 2011 - Valentines Party

I’m guessing that this was conceptualized as a nightly genre music concerts featuring local and national acts. The Valentine’s Party on February 14 will be a night of “music and ballroom dancing” with performances by Anton Diva and The Gwadings. February 15 will be a Reggae Night that I guess will have performances by Baler’s popular reggae acts. I hope they play the surfer song “Bujangin”. The original events sked listed a Disco Night on February 16 but was later scrapped to give way to the Bb. Aurora Talent Night to be held at the same venue. I hope the Stayin Alive and VST&Co. fans would not be disappointed. February 17 is RnB Night. I don’t know any good Rhythm and Blues local bands so let’s hope the Tourism office bring in at least Rihanna to make the night exciting. There will be two parties on February 18. For the beer drinkers and rockers, there’s the People’s Party at the Sabang Beach after the Fireworks Display. I heard that show sponsor San Miguel Beer will bring in Alamid, that local band we loved in the early 90’s for giving us the hits “Your Love” and “Batibot”. Also on the same night, there will be an Acoustic Night at the Capitol Grounds. I know some great acoustic singers in town so this should be a great gig. On the last night of Aurora Day Celebrations, Governor Bellaflor Angara-Castillo will treat the government employees of the Province and her guests to a night of ballroom dancing and musical performances. This event is what we used to call as “Auditorium” years ago. I also heard that there will be a Beer na Beer concert at the Beach featuring Parokya ni Edgar. This is not a part of the Aurora Day official events but let’s hope it’s true. If it’s not true them my reliable source is not that really reliable and I will remove him from my Facebook friends list promptly.
