Toby Tiangco treats Navotas residents to drone dance for city’s anniversary


More than 14,000 residents of Navotas and guests were treated to a spectacular drone dance on January 15 as the city celebrated its 114th founding anniversary.

The exhibition, held at the Navotas Centennial Park, involved some 180 drones forming various images such as the Navotas map, fish, ship and buildings that symbolized the city’s thriving fishing industry.

“Each year, we hope to give you a celebration grander than the previous one. This is our way of thanking you for your steadfast support to our government and your valuable contribution to our city’s progress,” Mayor Toby Tiangco said.

The drone dance was part of the Variety Show and Grand Fireworks Display conducted every January 15 as penultimate event of the Pangisdaan Festival.

This year’s show featured Loisa Andalio and Ronnie Alonte,
Rayver Cruz,
Zephanie Dimaranan,
Michael Pangilinan,
Jericho Rosales and December Avenue.

Also present were Jana Agoncillo, Kyline Alcantara, Andrea Torres, Negi and Pepay, and MC and Lassie.

The festival organizers also tapped local talents including the NavotaAs art scholars,
Navotas All Stars dance group, Mutya ng Navotas 2019 Anne Tenorio and Prince of Ballad
Gerald Santos.

Meanwhile, amid the merriment, Cong. John Rey Tiangco called on the public to pray for the survivors of Taal Volcano’s unrest and extend help in any way they can.

The lawmaker said donations may be brought to the City Social Welfare and Development Office at the Navotas City Hall Annex.
