Recently, the first ever joint mall show project of the Fancy Pigeon Group of Pampanga (FPGP) and the Kabalen Bantam Society (KBS) was held at Robinsons Starmalls in Pampanga. With the aim of introducing and promoting the fancy feathered hobby in the country, the event featured different fancy pigeon breeds chosen by some of the best hobbyists in the province, the pigeons competed for coveted titles for their respective breeds.


Edward dela Cruz of EDC Farm bagged many awards, including Best of Breed awards.

Visitors to the event and exhibit included San Fernando, Pampanga Mayor Edwin Santiago and some of the respected personalities in the fancy pigeon hobby. It was a pleasant surprise for organizers to discover that locals considered their event highly interesting, and that the mayor saw its potential for attracting local tourism as an annual event in the city fiesta’s week-long celebrations.
