Oct 22, 2013

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT - Revelers from Olongapo City, Zambales and Bataan will fill the entire stretch of Magsaysay Drive in Olongapo to groove to party music at this year's Mardi Gras, which will run from October 23 to 25.

The street party will attempt to break the Philippine and world records for the most number of street party-goers on the last day of the event.

Dubbed as "Galaw 'Gapo", the event will have people dancing simultaneously to party music for one hour along the entire stretch of Magsaysay Drive, the city's main entertainment venue.

The Philippine record is currently held by Manila with 8,000 street party-goers, while France holds the current world record with 10,000.

Meanwhile, the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) will be joining the festivities by featuring performers from different tourism-business locators inside the Subic Bay Freeport during the event's first day.

The SBMA tourism office said that local bands Vanity and Versus will play on the SBMA stage located in front of Casino Filipino-Olongapo.

The three-day street party will also be broadcast live online by DWSB 89.5 Subic Bay Radio, SBMA's official radio station.

Other performers from Manila, as well as local artists, will provide entertainment during the upcoming street party.

Local and Manila-based DJs will make sure the party will never stop by providing dance music for three days, organizers said.

The Olongapo Mardi Gras is an annual street party organized by the city government of Olongapo and Metro Olongapo Chamber of Commerce, and supported by the SBMA. (30)
