Winners in both categories received P20,000 each for the champions, P10,000 each for the 1st Runners up and P5,000 each for the 2nd Runners up.
In an interview, Mayor Edwin “EdSa” Santiago said the City Government and the Executive Committee seek to revive the colorful and lively fiesta tradition that also flaunts the great talents of Fernandinos and Kapampangans.
He furthered that this also serves as a gathering of Fernandinos from different barangays and residents from neighboring towns thus introduces new acquaintances especially to the youth.
“The annual Pyestang Fernandino is a form of thanksgiving for the city’s bountiful harvest. It is a significant event because it nurtures the history and culture and illustrates Filipino hospitality,” Mayor EdSa added.
