Zamboanga Hermosa Festival 2011 schedule of activities

Have you ever been curious about Zamboanga? I know that a lot of non-Mindanaoans have impressions and ideas about Zamboanga City, Zamboanga del Sur and Zamboanga del Norte and sadly, more often than not, these aren’t good. Let’s face it, most of the time, Zamboanga is in the news because of something bad…which actually happens in every other area in the world anyway! Good thing there’s an upcoming Zamboanga festival that you might want to attend — and hopefully through the Zamboanga Hermosa Festival 2011, your impression of Zamboanga will change/improve and you might find yourself falling in love with this charming city in Mindanao.

This October, Zamboanga will celebrate the much-awaited 2011 Zamboanga Hermosa Festival. With the theme, “Fiesta Hermosa…Vamos A Zamboanga!,” this Mindanao festival aims to showcase not only the beautiful tourist spots in Zamboanga but its rich culture, tradition and beautiful people as well!

Please feel free to check the Zamboanga Hermosa 2011 schedule of activities below. For more details, you can call (062) – 992-3007 or you can visit the Zamboanga City Tourism Office at the Sunken Garden, JS Alano Street, Zamboanga Street.
