The 10-day celebration of mango festivity, also known as the “Dinamulag Festival,” started on May 2 will end on Saturday (May 11).

Among the festival’s highlights are the street dance parade and competitions, agri-tourism trade fair, and mango-picking activities that will be happening on Friday.

Zambales is known for its distinctively sweet carabao, or dinamulag variety.
