SORSOGON READY FOR INFLUX OF TOURISTS

0

Sorsogon celebrated its 20th Kasanggayahan Festival on October 17 that became the sounding horn for readiness to put the province as one of the highlights in the Philippine tourism map to attract local and foreign tourists. In Bicolano, Kasanggayahan means a life of peace, progress, and prosperity. Every October, the festival commemorates the foundation of Sorsogon as an independent province from Albay in 1894. But this year Kasanggayahan Festival gave an added flavor bringing out the best of the province’s historical and spiritual heritage by celebrating the first Mass in Luzon, which took place on the shores of the Ginangra River near Gibaldon in the town of Magallanes in 1567 during the Spanish colonization.
