My Hometown

Bongabon,Nueva Ecija ,located 145 km northeast of Manila.
It is dubbed as the Onion Capital of the Philippines for it is the top onion producer of the country.

Harvesting of onion is done during the late March to April. During harvest time, onions can be seen (and smell too) from almost everywhere. Farmers also planted rice and vegetables during rainy season. During planting and harvesting season (rice or onion) the esence of BAYANIHAN is still alive especially in remote areas.

The town fiesta or ‘Sibuyasan Festival’ is celebrated with great fervor
during seocnd week of April to give thanks to the Lord Almighty
for the blessings and for giving the town a good harvest…

Welcome to Bongabon!
