Angeles City gathered 22 sets of identical twins during the Kambal Festival held at the start of October.
The sets of twins came from 18 barangays in the city and were paraded onboard floats made of indigenous and recyclable materials designed by the City Engineer’s Office led by Engineer Donato Dizon and the One United LGBTQ+ group.
Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. led the parade along with his brother Pampanga Rep. Carmelo Lazatin II, and members of the Environmental Management System-City Engineer’s Office.
This was the second Kambal Festival celebration under Lazatin’s administration.
“I am very happy today na nakaharap ko po kayo for this Kambal Festival. After two years, mikit-ikit tamu ngan pu pasibayu to properly celebrate Angeles City’s Twin Fiesta,” Lazatin said.
“These events and festivities are testaments of the resiliency of Angeleños,” he added.
The 22 sets of twins came from 18 barangays including Agapito Del Rosario, Cuayan, Cutud, Cutcut, Lourdes Northwest, Lourdes Sur East, Malabanias, Pandan, Pampang, Pulung Maragul, Pulungbulu, San Nicolas, San Jose, Sapalibutad, Sta. Teresita, Sta. Trinidad, Sto. Rosario, and Tabun.
The parade started from the city’s crossing area up to the Heritage District.
