Dios iti Agngina”, the Concert
On the night of February 01, 2017, the celebration of the opening day of the Pamulinawen Festival continued at the Aurora Park, with the “Dios ti Agngina”, the Concert featuring the Boy Band PH, Actor/Model Mr. Lem Pelayo of ABS–CBN TV Network, and RM Araneta of Star Magic. The concert was a gift from the City Government of Laoag headed by City Mayor Chevylle Fariñas, in partnership with Vertext Handyphones headed by its CEO Mr. Bjorn Lao, together with Samsung, Oppo phones and Smart. It was all made to happen to sound off the Laoaguenos on the Pamulinawen’s opening salvo.
Screaming, shouting, and crying are words that usually describe concerts like this, and the crowd was just ecstatic and so energized to watch the rising stars of Boy Band PH strut their wares singing their signature song “Somebody”.
Fans were given the chance to “selfie” with their idols, and were even allowed to get free autographs upon request. Although some security concerns delayed the performance of the main band because the crowd was just too excited to get a glimpse of their heartthrobs. After all the waiting and the wrangling for better position to view the artists, the show ended with everyone in awe, albeit a short one.
To cap it all, a majestic fireworks display took place at the foot of the Gilbert bridge, lighting the horizon with different colors and hues, and leaving the audience with mouths agape, their faces lit with fascination, and hope for their dear Laoag.
Everyone went home with a smile on their faces, thanks to the Mother and the Father of the City, Honourable Chevylle V. Fariñas and Honourable Michael V. Fariñas, as well as their partners in this endeavour.
Together as one, let us all Achieve!
Agbiag ti Ciudad iti Laoag!
