Rizal Trade and Tourism Fair — 113th Foundation Day of Rizal

Another highlight of the 113th Foundation Day Celebration is the Rizal Trade and Tourism Fair held at Ynares Center Complex in Antipolo City. Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the province participated by selling, displaying and promoting their original products like accessories, bags, rtw, handicrafts, footwears and etc. Native foods and Agricultural products from every municipality of the province were also boasted and sold in most reasonable prices.

The month-long celebration of the Rizal Foundation Day is motivated by a united Rizaleños theme, “Pasyal sa Rizal, Sining, Kultura at Turismo” (Visit Rizal, Arts, Culture and Tourism). It is a theme relative to the aim of the Department of Tourism in boosting tourism industry with the motto, “It’s more Fun in the Philippines”.

The provincial government’s support for the SMes is greatly appreciated. It will surely benefit the Rizaleños and businesses of the Rizal Province.

Zumba Fun Fitness During the Unity Run 2

While waiting for all the runners to arrive at the Finish Line and while waiting for the results of the Unity Run 2, an aerobics exercise in zumba dance were started.

Three Zumba Dance instructors alternately led a lively aerobics dance while most participants of the Unity Run 2 joined. It seemed that the 3 or 5 kilometers run were not enough for their exercise, they had so much more to give.

Everyone had so much fun!

I can’t help myself but also to dance with the beat while taking pictures and videos. More videos on YouTube.
