Mayor Celso Lobregat celebrated his 64th birthday Tuesday with a big bang with the blessing of the musically gyrating dancing fountain and the inauguration of five new stalls at Paseo del Mar, to the delight of thousands of spectators from all walks of life.

Unveiled on his birthday were the stalls that deal in Popcorn and cotton candy, peanu, balut and chicharon, potato twister and potato delicacies, corn on the cob, and shomai—all located at the entrance to Paseo del Mar.

Shortly, Lobregat ushered Archbishop Romulo Valles and guests to the musically gyrating dancing fountain for its blessing and soft launching followed by the10-minute  spectacular show of colorful lights and water dancing to the beat of music that wowed the people who went in throngs to witness the show.
Lobregat together with children Louie and Marco and grandchildren feted his guests to cocktail and dinner at the gazebo de paseo, where the sprawling parking space was laden with dining tables. And the event was never completed without the video presentations—one produced by TV 11 and the other the PIO Division of the City Mayor’s Office—chronicling the mayor’s activities and light moments during the year.

The mayor’s natal day started with blood-letting at CHO back-to-back with medical mission at City Hall lobby, during which hundreds donated blood and availed of the different medical services, free of charge.

A mass was concelebrated by Archbishop Valles and other priests at La Vista del Mar, where lunch was later served to thousands of guests.

On Sunday, Lobregat distributed food and food supplies to the different orphanage centers in the city, serving almost 500 abandoned children and elderly, including the staff. It is the mayor’s annual tradition every time he celebrates his birthday and Christmas. — Vic Larato
