Kadayawan Festival 2012

Kadayawan Festival 2012

Held annually in the city of Davao, Philippines. Energetic contestants with colorful ethnic costumes dance on the street of Davao as they thank and respect for the year's abundance.The festival honors Davao's artistic, cultural and historical heritage, its past personified by the ancestral Lumad people, its people as they celebrate on the streets, and its floral industry as its representatives parade in full regalia in thanksgiving for the blessings granted on the city. The festival attracts thousands of visitors all over the country and abroad. You can read my previous Kadayawan Festival post here.
