Bangus Festival is an annual festivity in Dagupan City, Pangasinan that kicks off every month of April. It celebrates the province's Bonuan bangus, which is renowned for its unique taste.

Bangus Festival, first celebrated in 2002, was the brainchild of former mayor Benjamin S. Lim, who wished to emphasize the local bangus industry and promote Dagupan as the Bangus Capital of the World. Initially a part of the thanksgiving festival Pista'y Dayat, Bangus Festival developed into a two-week socio-economic program of activities that highlights the city's top produce.

The festival commences with the lighting of 1,000 barbecue grills lined up to cook thousands of bangus, which stretches up to two kilometers. This also serves as a competition for hundreds of cooks, whose dishes are not only judged by the grilling but through whipping up the tastiest and most creative way of serving bangus.

Under the Social Security Act of 1997 (Republic Act No. 8282), employers shall give any pregnant employee who was able to render an aggregate service of at least six months for the last twelve months a maternity leave whether or not she is married to the father of the child. A maternity leave consists of two weeks prior to the expected delivery date and four weeks after normal delivery, with full pay based on her regular or average weekly wages. It could be extended to seventy-eight (78) days in case of a cesarean section delivery. A pregnant woman who is an SSS member should have paid at least three monthly contributions in the twelve-month period preceding the semester of childbirth in order to be paid a daily maternity benefit. The employer will cover maternity leave for the first four deliveries by a woman employee. May you have a safe delivery! God bless! :)
