aliwan fiesta 2008

Tagged as the "Mother of all Festivals", Aliwan Fiesta 2008 falls on May 1-3. On its 6th year already, this annual festival showcases close to 3,00 dancers from all over the Philippines. Aliwan Fiesta, organized and sponsored by the Manila Broadcasting Company, features the various merrymaking celebrations in every corner of our country.

The festival is made up of 3 parts. The Reyna ng Aliwan is the search for the most beautiful Filipina from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. The float competition is a display of Filipinos' creativity shown in the most colorful and artistic parade of floats. But the highlight of the festival is the streetdancing competition. The grand streetdancing is performed from Quirino Grandstand to the CCP Complex. Last year's winner was Cebu's Sinulog Festival.

I am so excited to see this year's show. I missed half of my life when I failed to see the festival last year. And this time, I surely won't miss it! I hope to see you there!
