Fiesta Pilipinas: Kasadyahan Regional Festival Competition

Congratulations to the winners! :)

On our second day in Iloilo (read about our first day here), we were given media passes to watch the Kasadyahan Regional Festival Competition, where ten tribes compete for the grand prize of Php 200,000! Each group would have to perform a total of five times in the different judging areas around Iloilo City. Aside from it being a competition, it is also a great way for them to showcase their town's culture and history (and for us to learn about them). Unfortunately, we were only able to watch seven out of ten performances since our schedule was pretty jampacked that day. Anyway, sharing with you some of photos from the event:
On our way to Judging Area 3 at Delgado-Mabini Street!
