Kadayawan Festival

Posted by The Queen Bee at Wednesday, August 26, 2009

The weekend was fun-filled for us people of Davao and a real treat for tourists who visited the Davao City for the Kadayawan Festival. Last Weekend, several activities left and right sent people rushing to different event venues in the city. People from all walks and diverse interests have their share of interesting stuffs to watch out. There's the Horticulture Exhibit for those who love flowers particularly orchids and cultural exhibits at the Davao Museum. Those who are interested in travel also have the Mindanao Travel Expo at Davao Convention Center where they get the chance to discover great deals and learn more about great travel destinations in Mindanao. Girls swooned over hunky PMA cadets as they did their Silent Drill at the Agro Field last Saturday afternoon. But of course, the merriment would not be complete without celebrities whom people eagerly waited for. Gaisano Mall was a blockbuster last weekend as several GMA stars featuring their latest show Darna whom people was so excited about. Marian Rivera donned her Darna costume, enough to send men in the audience salivating.

The highlight for Kadayawan Festival is and has always been (I believe) the Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan (street dance ) and the Floral Float Parade. I wasn't able to catch the Indak-Indak but I was fortunate to have been able to get a glimpse of the Floral Float Parade. It was really hot but it was worth it. I saw Illac Diaz (not part of the celebrities doing mall shows but as a tourist) but other people doesn't seem to recognize him. He was taking pictures too and of course I was taking a picture of him. hehehe... too bad he walked too fast that my cam only caught the side view. I had a double treat that day. Hahaha..
