KADAWAYAN FESTIVAL

 

I miss my homeland today, especially they are celebrating the KADAYAWAN FESTIVAL 2017. This Festival is an annual celebration held in Davao City, Philippines, the hometown of our President Duterte. This feast marks a celebration of thanksgiving for life, nature and abundant harvest.

Along with it are the extravagant floral and fruit floats parade with ethnic street dancing which we called Indak-indak sa Kadalanan competition.
