Zambales province is known for its sweet mango varieties. In fact, the Sweet Elena carabao mango variety grown here was cited in the Guinness Book of World Records world’s sweetest in 1995.
This paved the way for the yearly festivity known as “Dinamulag Festival,” to celebrate the bountiful harvest of other mango varieties known also for their large sizes.
Amor Deloso, governor of Zambales, said the festival aims to encourage people to visit Zambales.
“Zambales is more than just a mining province, it is a rising tourist site,” Deloso said. “The celebration of the Zambales mango is more than just the mango itself. Truly, the event is a celebration of Zambales and the many things one can do in the province.”
He said the annual revelry has gotten more exciting with the improvements in the staging of the Bb. Zambales and Ginoong Millenials.
Meanwhile, Zambales Vice Gov. Angel Magsaysay said, “Zambales is one of the popular summer destinations not only because it is blessed with the clean and endless beaches, but also because of its sweet kinalabaw (dinamulag) mangoes”.
She said the Dinamulag Festival celebration is about creating a legacy, adding that, “What we’re doing here today is to inspire our future generations to inspire our people.”
