Davao City is in festive mood once again as the celebration of the Kadayawan Festival formally starts last August 3.
Kadayawan Festival is a yearly event of thanksgiving for a year-round bounty and it is the most-waited and most spectacular event in the city.
This month-long celebration is expected to bring thousands of visitors to Davao to witness the event.
Davao City is popular as home to several varieties of fresh vegetables and fruits, particularly durian and pomelo. It is also rich in other agricultural products like cocoa beans, mangoes and mangosteen.
Aside from the major events like street dancing and floral float parade, new events are added to bring more excitement namely the Tunog Mindanaw, Fluvial Parade, Sayaw Mindanao and more.
The main highlights of this year’s Kadayawan Festival is set on August 17 to19.
