"Pagpasidungog Festival"

 (August 1-10)

Pagpasidungug means to honor. The Municipal Government of Panitan gives honor and recognition to every Panitaneo who has given something for the social, cultural, educational and economic development of this town. This festival honors their “KASIMANWAS” who bought fame, honor and recognition for Panitan.

       PANITAN, CAPIZ – The Global Reunion, “Gab-i Sang Pagpasidungog” and Coronation Night of the Fiesta Queen and King were the highlights of this town’s recent celebration of its annual fiesta last August 7-10.

    The Global Reunion was a get-together of Panitan’s balikbayans who are successful abroad. They go back to their hometown to contribute to its advancement either as benefactors, sponsors, or in whatever way that they could assist.

  The town’s beautiful and charming mayor, Katherine “Kit” Dequina-Belo said that the Global Reunion had a lot of familiar faces. The reunion, which she describes as a happy occasion, was joined by the municipal officials, employees, and working partners of the balikbayans.

Mayor Kit Belo and Vice Mayor Generoso Derramas with Fiesta Queen Raisa Ervina Benganio and Fiesta King John Frederick Degala. The Global Reunion night also included a modern ballroom dance event in which everyone had a grant time.

  " Gab-i sang Pagpasidungog" is an occasion that gives recognition and awards to outstanding Panitanons who bring honor and dignity to the town.

This year’s festivity, themed “Pagpasidungog to Deserving Panit-anons” was in honor of St. Lawrence the Deacon, the town’s patron saint.
