Sorsogon City has launched the 2024 Gayon Ciudad Festival, formerly known as Pili Festival, showcasing a military civic parade, concerts, sail painting, and a 3D art exhibit.

A unique sail painting activity transformed boat sails into canvases for artistic expression. Local artists displayed their realistic 3D paintings on the streets near the pier.

The grand opening also featured a drone show that highlighted Sorsogon’s landmarks like the Cathedral and the Sports Arena.

The festival is set until June 29, 2024.

"Marami pong events ang maaring abangan, isa po dito yung cultural presentation. Ang cultural presentation po namin ay kasama namin rito ang DepEd Sorsogon City kung saan ang mga estudyante mula high school and elementary ay nagkaroon ng presentation tungkol sa cultural, tradition and values ng Sorsogon City," Asia Olbes-Jao, Sorsogon City Tourism Officer, said.
