San Fernando City’s Poro Point Baywalk in La Union

Since a lot of us Tagudinians go to San Fernando to shop and to do errands, here is the newest attraction in the city of San Fernando that you might want to see. Candon City is closer to Tagudin but more Tagudinians still prefer to go to San Fernando for the city has more business and shopping establishments and a lot of the government government offices are located here in the city. Candon City is catching up with San Fernando though. Hopefully, the people of Tagudin would not have to go to other places in the future.

Poro Point Baywalk to open
By Richmond Mercurio (The Philippine Star) | Updated April 2, 2016 – 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines – Bases Conversion and Development Authority subsidiary Poro Point Management Corp. (PPMC) is set to inaugurate next week its P57.45 million Poro Point Baywalk project.

The Poro Point Baywalk features playgrounds, picnic area, gazebos, an amphitheater and a commercial strip.

“The commercial strip will be leased out to interested investors and small and medium enterprises. This will promote the participation of local businessmen in the development of the Poro Point Freeport Zone,” PPMC chairman Ives Nisce said.

PPMC said the 1.3-kilometer baywalk fronting San Fernando Bay would be opened during this year’s celebration of the Sillag Poro Point Festival of Lights on April 9.

“This infrastructure project was launched during the Sillag Festival in 2015 which drew thousands of participants, thus, highlighting the project’s viability. It is foreseen to draw more tourists to the area and enhance the competitiveness of the zone,” Nisce said.

PPMC said the Sillag Festival is La Union’s counterpart to Baguio City’s Panagbenga and Clark’s International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta.

The annual Sillag Festival was initiated by PPMC together with the BCDA and the provincial government of La Union in 2012.
