Santos Street in Barangay Malinta against the crowd of elated shoppers and craving foodies.

The City’s Local Economic Development and Investments Promotion Office (LEDIPO) and the Valenzuela City Parks Administration Office once again turned the C.J. Santos St. across the Valenzuela City People’s Park into a food and goods hall for some 75 local entrepreneurs.
