My World#124 Kadayawan Festival

August is here again and I am quite excited for it. There may be too much rains nowadays but my favorite of all festivals is keeping my spirit up.

On the 3rd week of August, Kadayawan festival will come alive. Preparations are already underway and news have been circling around that there would be more visitors than ever before. While I would prefer not to have too many visitors during Kadayawan festival, there would be nothing much to do about it considering it has become too popular.


Kadayawan festival is a celebration of thanksgiving for the good harvest and blessings. The festival was patterned from the indigenous people of Davao's celebration of harvest season.

The festival is not only such a foodie's and shopper's delight but it has also become a photographer's delight for its vivid colors and pulsating sounds. Recent news revealed that about an estimated of 5,000 photographers shall converge to take photos of the week-long festival. I am raring to be at the front seat!

I should visit this festival one of these days. It would be a delight photographing all the colorful costumes and different activities of the festival.
