Here are some postcards that feature different festivals in the Philippines:
|Tuna Festival is an annual week long festival held every 4th week of September,|
in General Santos City, highlighting the significant role of tuna industry.
It showcases Parada sa Dagat (Sea Parade) and street dancing and float parade.
The are more festivities other that these that are held every year in the Philippines. Of the 5 featured here, I've been only to 1 which is the Kadayawan Festival in Davao City. Though I remember celebrating many fiestas in Bohol before, I was too young then to understand what they were all about.
I don't want to be a foreigner in my own country so it is my hope that the next time I visit the Philippines, I would like to travel some more within the country, get to know the local traditions of each province or city, and of course, observe more festivities.
