Agew na Pangasinan – April 5 2013

Pangasinenses will be celebrating the 433rd Agew na Pangasinan this April 5, Friday. The day is customarily a special non-working holiday in the province, although last year, the festivities were moved to April 11 since April 5 is Maundy Thursday. Governor Amado Espino in 2010 signed Ordinance #143 which declared April 5 of every year as the foundation day of Pangasinan.

According to a brief history posted on the website of the local government of Pangasinan, the said Northern Luzon province was organized as a politico-civil administrative unit or province by then-Governor General Gonzalo Ronquillo de Peñalosa. Don Pedro Manrique served as its first alcalde mayor.

The following activities are scheduled to be held on April 5:

  • A presentation on Pangasinan history by the Pangasinan Historical and Cultural Commission
  • Awarding ceremonies for the “Kurit Panlunggaring” Literary Contest and the Balitok A Tawir Culture and Arts Festival
  • 4th ASNA Awards Night (for outstanding Pangasinenses)

PS: Pangasinan will have another province-wide holiday … on November 13.

      Hi, Dianne. Yes, you’re right.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
