Pangasinan tourism will highlight this year’s Pista’y Dayat during the 18-day 3rd Aliguas ed Turismo Tan Ekonomiya (Pangasinan Tourism and Expo) from April 23 to May 10.

Maria Luisa A. Elduayan, Chief of Tourism Division, said that 94 exhibitors, including 13 One-Town-One-Product (OTOP), will participate in the tourism and trade expo.

Elduayan said that the event is expected to boost the local tourism industry as it will showcase the province’s prime tourist destinations and other best prime and local produce of different towns and cities.

According to Elduayan, tourism has improved a lot after Gov. Amado T. Espino, Jr. started a major facelift of the facilities of the industry, especially the entire capitol complex, now considered as the province’s main tourism attraction.

With the improved facilities, the governor is now focusing on the province’s “best products” to promote further tourism, Elduayan said.

The Pista’y Dayat festival, she added, is one of the best venues where Pangasinenses and visitors alike can familiarize themselves on the various products found in different towns throughout the province.

Aside from the OTOP, the tourism and trade exhibit will feature Pangasinan’s finest cuisine thru various small and medium enterprise food carts, the fine craftsmanship in wood and bamboo furniture and the wide array of agricultural products that have won for the province the monicker “foodbasket of northern Luzon.”

The tourism and trade fair venue will be at the back of the Urduja House here. (PIO/Ruby R. Bernardino)
