San Fabian Town Fiesta
Tuesday, January 23, 2007

San Fabian is a town in Pangasinan around 16 kilometers away from Dagupan City, the city of bangus, our national fish. Our town is famous for its tuyo (dried fish). It is not salty as compared to the tuyo from other towns of Pangasinan.

San Fabian town fiesta is celebrated annually on January 19 and 20. There is the annual search for Mrs. San Fabian and of course, for Miss San Fabian. For several years now, these thrones are in the hands of balikbayans. They are those people who are originally from this town but are now living abroad.

For several days before the feast day, lots of civic celebrations and activities are already being held. There was the amateur boxing competition, marathon competition, pretty boys competition, Miss Gay San Fabian, and free medical-dental mission. These activities kept everyone busy and high in spirit as every body await for the main events, the crowning of the beauties. Coronation for Mrs. San Fabian took place on the night of January 18 and for Miss San Fabian on January 19.

On the morning of the pre-feast day, January 19, people already crowded the main streets as early as 7 AM to wait for the passing of the parade. Sounds coming from sirens, drums, and loud music can be heard coming from the plaza indicating that the parade is ready to pass anytime.

There were 10 floats all in all. One for the San Fabian Market Association, another for the Savants Club, then one each for Miss and Mrs. San Fabian 2006. The big and beautiful floats adorned with fresh flowers of different kinds were those of the reigning queens for this year, Mrs. San Fabian 2007 and Miss San Fabian 2007. The First and Second Princesses of each title had also their own floats. Each float is being followed by street dancers and by the officers and members of different schools and civic organizations.

This is the last float in the parade, that of Miss San Fabian 2007.
