General Santos City, in commemoration of its 43rd Charter Anniversary, is ready for the Big Splash! My beloved city is celebrating the 13th Tuna Festival on August 26 to September 5, 2011 with oozing vitality.
I will be one of the hosts of the Opening Ceremonies. The opening salvo, according to writer-director Egai Cadiente, “is a theatrical tribute to the sea through metaphorical portrayals of man’s interaction with its waters.” He declared, “Blessed with the ocean’s riches, the city pays homage to the element of sea water that continues to yield harvest for its people.”
Mr. Thomas Bebot Haw, Festival Director for Administration, and Mr. Ronald Velasquez, Festival Director for Operations, are making sure that all the details are going to add to the pizzazz of the celebration. This year’s theme is “Exploring New Depths, Conquering New Heights”.
Come and enjoy the big splash with us!
