In a nutshell, the celebration of Fiestang Kuliat embodies the emergence of Angeles City as one of the progressive urban centers in Region III after the “double whammy” that hit the City in 1991 — the Mt. Pinatubo eruption and the withdrawal of the US Military base in Clarkfield.
The Angeleños resiliency and steadfast resolve to recover from these trials brought us to where we are now. The aftermath of these natural and man-made disasters brought anew the inherent Kapampangan trait of determination to survive. Amidst widespread uncertainty, the local government responded to the needs of its people in crisis; various institutions and civic organizations came and gave assistance. Affected businesses started to gain new ground, and Angeleños from all walks of life temporarily set aside differences and worked together to regain normalcy in their lives.
Angeleños felt a need to jubilate from these significant experience and historical milestone. Hence, a year after Pinatubo came the realization of a bright idea — the celebration of Fiestang Kuliat, which aptly represents the triumph of Angeleños inspite of these crises. Since its birth in 1992, the Fiestang Kuliat has been an integral part of Angeles City's rich culture and heritage. The significant event also gives an opportunity to fellow cabalens from nearby towns and local tourists from manila to experience the revelry and the enticing charm of the city.
