The city has a longganisa-themed parade and at one time attempted to set a record for having the longest longganisa ever made. The festival has become a crowd-drawer as Vigan longganisa, a native version of Mexican salami, has a distinct garlicky taste that has become a favorite of the Filipino palate. – http://www.vigan.ph

Within the Vigan City Fiesta days, the Longganisa Festival is also celebrated. The city has a longganisa-themed parade and at one time attempted to set a record for having the longest longganisa ever made. The festival has become a crowd-drawer as Vigan longganisa, a native version of Mexican salami, has a distinct garlicky taste that has become a favorite of the Filipino palate.
Though other manufacturers have tried to copy the Vigan longganisa taste, they have not been successful. Biguenos attribute this to the fact that the making of Vigan longganisa is a centuries-old tradition of the local makers and all if not most of the ingredients used in making the native sausage is sourced from Vigan. Vigan’s garlic and sugarcane vinegar are said to be more strongly flavorful. It’s a great take-home gift after partaking in a Vigan City Fiesta. – http://www.vigan.ph/vigan_city_fiesta.html
The Festival, which will be held until Jan. 27, coincides with the anniversary celebration of Vigan’s cityhood and its annual fiesta in honor of St. Paul.
The street dancing competition will feature 13 participating teams from the different provinces in Ilocos Region and each team will compete in three categories. The teams, composed of high school and college students, will dramatize the process of making longaniza. – http://www.travelsmart.net/article/10000250/
