       Local fiestas and festivals are integral parts of Filipino culture. Each city and municipality has it’s own local festival which usually focus on religious traditions such as feast of their patron saint while the other festivals are integrated with significant historical events of the area or their local products. Rang-ay Bank welcomed the fiesta season in the Philippines by supporting and participating in local festivals and joining scheduled activities.

       Officers & staff of Bangued Branch led by Senior Branch Manager Rolly Rabanal joined the annual Dapil Festival of the capital town of Bangued, Abra last February 23, 2019. The Dapil Festival signifies the process of “panagdapil” which turns sugarcane into different end-products such as vinegar, basi, ‘balikutsa’ and muscovado (an ingredient in making Bangued’s famous ‘cascaron’). Rang-ay Bank Bangued participated in the fun run with all seven staff finishing the race.

       Last March 18, 2019, Rang-ay Bank participated in the annual celebration of the strawberry festival of the "Strawberry Fields of the Philippines" in La Trinidad, Benguet. The branch led by Branch Manager Marlon Flores, together with the Head Office Marketing Team participated in the parade together with the people of La Trinidad and other sectors of the community. The Strawberry Festival is a long-standing event that fuses delicious snacks with long-standing traditions for an amazing holiday experience where locals and foreigners get to savor the culture in Benguet while having fun.

       Officers and staff from the Head Office and San Fernando Main Branch led by Senior IT Manager Francis Delos Santos participated in the 8th Sillag Festival last April 5, 2019 held at Poro Point Freeport Zone, San Fernando City, La Union. The event kicked off with exciting activities such as Zumba (Dance by the Bay), Sunset Run for Hope 2k19 and the opening of the Sillag Village. Rang-ay Bankers participated in the Sillag Fun Run with 10 bankers who finished the race. Sillag is the brain child of Rang-ay Bank Chairman and former PPMC Chairman Ives Nisce which started in 2011.
