This 2013 Tuna Festival, just like last year will be handled by the Philippine Fish Port Development Authority, Inc.. They will be working closely with the new administration of Mayor Ronnel Rivera to ensure that despite the short period of preparations, the generals should expect a festive celebration of the city’s 45th Charter Anniversary.
