Are you ready for 2016? If you are spending the year in Manila and in different parts of the Philippines, take a look at the holidays, festivals, events, and concerts coming to the country this year.
The City of Koronadal holds an annual merry-making or “hinugyaw” (Ilonggo dialect meaning merry-making) with street dancing and tribal performances complete with a gala of colourful costumes and large attractive props and ornaments to the delight of the spectators who usually gather in throngs lining up the streets. From the street dancing and parade, the groups gather in one large venue for the group’s full length performance entertaining an even larger audience.
Aliwan Fiesta is kind of a 'best of', featuring the most impressive floats and dancing groups of festivals from all over the country. So if anyone wants to get a glimpse of culture from all Philippine provinces, this is the perfect opportunity.
