KADAYAWAN FESTIVAL 2013 – Davao City, Philippines

Once Again, Davao City has marked another milestone as it celebrates it’s Kadayawan Festival this year!. Join me as I take you to the different activities we enjoyed so much as we celebrate the bountiful harvest of the flagship fruits and flowers of DAVAO. Vast as such with utmost smiles on top of the scorching heat of the sun.


(It was indeed a beautiful day, because it was also my Birthday. And guess whose with me to give me greetings! I’ll reveal it below as you continue reading.)

Oh the smiles of these cute little ones made this Indak-Indak sa kadalanan so fun and exciting. This has been an annual routine of Davao which caters the talents of every Dabawenyos, as they showcase the Nature’s Bounty of the city. The pictures taken below are along the most busy street of C.M. Recto Avenue . This was participated by almost 50 schools all over Mindanao, from Children’s to Professional Categories.  The stunning costumes had filled the street different colors which made the over all presentation so enjoyable to watch.

Let our faces show how we had so much fun taking pictures while these pupils perform their Katutubong sayaw even without any shoes or slippers, just to perfectly portray the specific culture they are representing. Different cultures in different way of expressing bounty. From Abaca, to Corn, to Rice Grains, to Sto. Nino , Malong, Salakot and many more! Scroll Down and together we will enjoy the different cultures of Mindanao.
