In celebration of the 9th Organic Agri-Aqua and Livestock Fair, we are encouraged to mount our own booth that will represent our barangay. In said booth, we will be displaying agricultural and aqua products which may also be sold to interested exhibitors.
We are looking forward to this festival because it will be a good opportunity to showcase the resources of Kauswagan, Lanao del Norte. Besides, the best booth will be awarded, that’s why we are really preparing for this.
One of the highlights of the celebration is the dance contest where the participants will interpret the festival. We are doing our best preparations to make this year’s festival better than ever so we can expect more tourists in the future. Our mayor believes that this is fair a good way to promote the agri-aqua products not just of Lanao but also the whole country.

For 6 consecutive years, we can claim that our Lubao International Balloon and Music Festival has been successful. Of course we were a bit pressured during the preparations because this annual event of Pampanga is the biggest Hot Air Balloon Festival in the Southeast Asia, not to mention, it is a three-day celebration. We have to make sure that everything is well-prepared especially the security, traffic, and assistance but we are thankful that we received support regarding these concerns that’s why everything went well. This event became successful through our coordination with Arts, Culture and Tourism offices of Pampanga (ACTO) and with support from the Provincial Government of Pampanga.

We are glad because along with the celebration of the 405th Founding Anniversary of Bayambang, is the launch of the St. Vincent Ferrer Prayer Park which is a gift of our beloved Cezar T. Quiambao and wife Niña Jose-Quiambao to all Bayambangueños. Bayambang’s St. Vincent Ferrer Statue is a Guinness World Record holder for the world’s tallest bamboo sculpture. It is taller than the Statue of Liberty in New York and Christ the Redeemer in Brazil.
We are grateful to our mayor because this fiesta, he wants us to relax and enjoy the celebration instead of busying ourselves with the preparations.
