In coordination with the Olongapo City Government and Beach Boulevard Business Association (BBBA), Subic Bay Resorts Association (SUBRA) is all-set as lead organization for the celebration of the annual "Sibit-Sibit Festival" on April 23-25, 2009 at Barangay Barretto, this city.

The annual event in the city depicts its rich and colorful history. The term sibit-sibit is a word derived from the small banca used for fishing in the early times when Olongapo was still a fishing village.

The festival started as a barangay event of Barangay Barretto. Mayor James Gordon, Jr. elevated the festival into a city event because of its potential in promoting the city's tourism industry.

Carlito Baloy, SUBRA Chairman and Barangay Barretto Chairperson, said that the festival is a come- one activity for both local and foreign tourists visiting the city and adjacent communities this summer. This kind of event further boosts Olongapo’s potential as one of the country’s promising tourism hub.
