Bangus Festival is one of the most exciting festivals in the Philippines. It is held from April 13 to May 1 in the City of Dagupan in Pangasinan.

Bangus Festival starts with the ceremonial lighting of 1000 barbecue grills that stretches to a kilometer. These grills are used to cook 10,000 pieces of bangus.

But the most awaited event in the festival is the "Bangus Rodeo" wherein there is a bangus eating competition, bangus deboning competition and also the heaviest and biggest bangus competition.
