Bienvenidos na grande celebracion del Zamboanga Hemosa este año (Welcome to the big celebration of Beautiful Zamboanga this year)! It beckons the people of all faith and culture to be united and witness the resurgence of Zamboanga City’s grandest religious fiesta in honor of the La Virgen del Pilar.

With the theme, “Levante Con Fuerza and Faith; Marcha Con Alegria, Devocion, y Unidad (Stand Up with Strength and Faith: March with Happiness, Devotion, and Unity,” Zamboanga City Tourism Officer Sarita Hernandez has lined up exciting and colorful events to affirm our city’s resilience and strong fighting spirit after the unfortunate 2013 Zamboanga City siege.

More than just a celebration and a religious event combined, Zamboanga City under the helm of our brave Alcadeza (Mayor) Beng Climaco-Salazar will showcase how Zamboangueños value and enjoy life despite the city’s diverse cultures and faith.  Expect a riot of colors and the pulsating beats of timeless traditions and trending tunes beginning today.

Vamos a Zamboanga!

Psalm 107:29-32 “He caused the storm to be still, So that the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad because they were quiet; So He guided them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men! Let them extol Him also in the congregation of the people, And praise Him at the seat of the elders.”
