DAGUPAN CITY – The search for MsTizang Bangus will again take center stage in this year’s Bangus Festival after its successful maiden run  last year in order  to create awareness on HIV-AIDS and protect the populace from the killer disease.

Scheduled on April 21 at the Dagupan City Plaza, the event will again be held with a purpose and this time it will focus on protecting the environment against any form of pollution.

Epee Rafanan of the 2018 Bangus Festival Executive Committee disclosed that the gay beauty pageant will not just be about charm, beauty and intelligence but will also be an avenue to create awareness on ecology.

“Last year our cause was to create awareness about HIV-AIDS. This year’s pageant will again be for a noble cause and this time it will focus on protecting the environment,” said Rafanan.

This pageant is again open to every interested candidate from all over the country.

Rafanan said this is part of promoting the festival all over the country.

The first MsTizang Bangus winner was Ivern Doroteo of Tarlac. (Joseph C. Bacani/CIO/March 27, 2018)
