April 13 2013 – a much anticipated festival for many. Since 2007, I make sure to attend this festival as much as I could. What made this popular? Well.. various contingents all over the Philippines come to Manila and perform their native dances. Winners will be awarded with a prizes but I guess the “prestige and pride” is what matters to the contestants.
For those who’d like to join the festivities in the upcoming year, I suggest to go as early as 10 am to have a closer interaction with the contingents and to have a better photo opportunities with them.
Here’s my rendition of “Faces of Aliwan”
Hope to see you next Aliwan Festival
