Don’t miss this event if you’re somewhere near SM City Marilao on October 2. Marilao, Bulacan is just 30 minutes away from Manila. There are FX vans at SM City North Edsa going to Marilao. I will be going with the 400 plus delegates from Aurora. I will not perform on stage, i’ll just take pictures. I saw the rehearsals of the presentations and it’s better than any fiesta production in Baler. The Provincial Government is really bent on making this presentation a special one. There will be performances of the best street dancing kids in Aurora, a Comedia de Baler, the Pangkat Kawayan, a dramatization of the Siege of Baler with John Arcilla, Fashion Show, Folk Dances and lots of other performances. See you there!
