Kadayawan means - good, beautiful, fruitful or abundant.
Kadayawan sa Davao - One of the most visited Festival in Davao Philippines.
I may be from Davao but I do not go back to visit the city. Not until in recent year that I am no longer working for a nine to five (11 - 11 for me) job.
Kadayawan to me is the one of the most happening festival in the city of Davao. I was once in this event back in 2014. I was an unforgettable colours of many people, different types of cars, motorcycles. Everywhere was wonderful to see.
Abundance of fruits and flowers displays on the street of Davao City.
People were on parade with beautiful costumes, ornaments and accessories. You will see the never seen in your country. This is the biggest festival in Davao city Mindanao.
Here is the video footage during Kadayawan sa Davao.
Super loud music of different kind are played everywhere. From the smallest instrument flute to to customise drums. Everywhere was very loud and I would not know where to take videos at that time. I was massive crazy and busy.
At night, there was a huge disco happening at the center of Davao city which is San Pedro street or Rizal Park.
But my question lead to, How safe will be the Kadayawan sa Davao this year 2017?
With Rodrigo Duterte being a president and Davao is his hometown.
Well, we may hear so many negative news. To me Davao will be the safest city in the Philippines.
Marawi is very far from Davao city itself.
Davaoweneos (native people of Davao are very vigilant. There are groups of civilians that watching every corner of the city itself.
There are also uniform and non uniform of military who are watching every corner.
I understand that having this Curfew implemented by Philippine President Duterte, The violence of Davao city is very much controlled.
