CITY OF MALOLOS – Bulacan will once again live up to how the country calls it, ‘Wedding Capital of the Philippines’, as the Provincial History, Arts, Culture and Tourism Office (PHACTO) and Bulacan Event Suppliers Association (BESA) open the “Kasalan at Okasyon” two-day exhibit at SM City San Jose del Monte on September 9 and 10.
Governor Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado shares that Bulacan is called the ‘Wedding Capital of the Philippines’ because the province houses quality jewelries, old churches that are best for weddings, numerous gown suppliers and continuously growing number of event suppliers.
Further, PHACTO Head Dr. Eliseo Dela Cruz said that the exhibit will feature the works of Bulakenyos from event organizing, video and photo coverage, make up and gowns up to the little things needed for a successful event to happen.
“Ito ay upang mahikayat ang ating mga kababayan na tangkilikin ang mga gawang lokal at maihanay ito sa pandaigdigang merkado. Magagaling ang mga Bulakenyo at bukod doon, hindi tayo kasing mahal ng iba, nag-ooffer tayo ng serbisyo na dekalidad pero hindi sobrang mahal,” Dela Cruz said.
Dela Cruz added that the exhibit also aims to inspire other young Bulakenyos to explore their talents and to dip their fingers and contribute in the said industry.
“Hindi mo rin naman alam kung kailan mo maiisipang mag-hold ng event, minsan biglaan gusto mo palang magpa-party, at least may idea ka na, may matatawag ka, o sa iba may maire-refer ka. Pwede rin namang maisip mo na gusto mo din magnegosyo ng ganito, pag nagpunta ka dito sa exhibit, makikilala mo ‘yung mga nasa circle nila na pwedeng makatulong sa’yo,” dela Cruz said.
Kasalan Okasyon is one of the activities in the month-long celebration of Singkaban Festival with the theme “Singkaban Festival 2017: Bulacan, babalik-balikan!”.
