Kadayawan Festival 2011

Kadayawan Festival was one of the most awaited celebration here in Davao City. It was a week long celebration showcasing the different events and programs highlighting the bountiful harvest  and giving honor and recognition of the different tribes domesticating the Davao Region. This year's celebration emphasizes the ten tribes of Davao. These were the Tausog;  Matigsalog;  Obu Manuvu; Maguindanao; Bagobo Tagabawa; Sama;   Bagobo Klata; Maranao;  Ata;  and Kagan.
The highlight of the celebration was the Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan. It was a street dance contest participated by different schools of different places in Mindanao. The most awaited event also was the Pamulak sa Kadayawan. It was a parade of big and small floats decorated with various flowers, fruits and plants which can be seen in Davao.

I have a great experienced together with my daughter and have fun taking pictures to the floats. It was ended a very successful celebration. Congratulations to the organizers and to the City Mayor Inday Sarah Duterte for making Kadayawan 2011 different from the previous years.
