A week long celebration of the City Fiesta was started last Sunday, it started with the Live Band from Manila, and some celebrities like Joseph Bitangcol, EB Babes and Ms. Pauline Luna of Eat Bulaga, and hosted by two stand up comedian from Zirco and Clowns. All Balanguenos are truly excited with the celebration, because aside from being part of the week long celebration the sponsors (The De Guzman Groups of Companies) are given away Gift Certificate for all Balanguenos who join the contest provided by Jollibee, Greenwhich and other company of De Guzman Groups of Companies.
After the Fireworks presentation at the City Plaza, it follows with the Street Dancing Competition, na lalo pang pinasaya ng mga makukulay na kasuotan. After the Street Dancing, it follows with the Gays Night where all the Gowns and other stuff which is created by the third sex, was presented at the heart of the city plaza, ngayon ko napatunayan na napaka talented ng mga third sex because of their well done gowns.
A live band competition was next in line, many balanguenos joined on the said contest. and ofcourse and hinihintay na lahat, the presentation of Mutya ng Lungsod ng Balanga. There are Fourteen (14) lovely candidates participated in the recent Skinny hot summer swimsuit competition last April 19, 2007 held at Dela Fuente Farm, Pilar Bataan. The pre-pageant was held last april 22 at Balanga City Plaza, siyempre kagaya ng nakasanayan kanya kanyang hatak ng mga kamag-anak as their audience the more relatives you have the more infact it will cost for the judges. It become more exciting when they show their talents with their different costumes.

The Holy week celebration, particularly Good Friday, is a display of devoutness and traditional pomp or yung tinatawag nating pinitencia. As part of our tradition and belief, marami sa ating mga filipino ang nagpupunta sa iba't-ibang lugar just to ask for forgiveness of their sin and to thank God for his sacrifices just to redeem our sins. Naging panata na rin ng mga deboto ang iba't ibang gawain kagaya ng "Pagpapako sa Krus", Pagulong, at iba pa.
At kagaya nga ng aking nakaugalian, yearly me and my family are spending some time para lang mapanood ang "SINAKULO" na ginaganap sa mismong PLAZA NG BALANGA, Medyo matagal din kaming naghintay sa pagdating ng mga gumaganap sa sinakulo, but our long time waiting is replenish with excitement and fun, when the "SINAKULO" was arrived. Hindi na namin pansin ang init ng araw at siksikan ng mga tao, dahil lahat kami ay nalilibang sa panonood ng re-enactment ng pagpapahirap kay Jesus Christ noong panahong siya ay pinapahirapan ng mga Hujo.
I uploaded video of the actual footage during the "Sinakulo" Here is the Link
