we attended the annual grand fiesta fever in the Philippines last night, the Aliwan Festival 2008. heavy rains and strong winds didn't stop the colorful festive event. it was participated by several cities and provinces in the Philippines showcasing their own way of celebrating the city's devotion, achievements and victories over time. some contingents brought with them more than 300participants traveling miles of way to the city of Manila for the grand celebration. bringing with them their costumes and other props used for the parade and the grand performance. the festival started last May 1 and ended last night with a grand parade and inspired performances for this annual event. drum beats, trumpets, gong sounds and shouts woke Manila's cultural center in awe and amazement. this is my second time to attend this event.the truth is i just arrived from the event giving me less time to posts more photos. so just keep in touch for the upcoming posts.
