Davao Kadayawan Festival 2017

Davao Kadayawan Festival 2017 is held annually every 3rd week of August, showcasing different floral floats from local schools and businesses in Davao City, Mindanao, Philippines. Kadayawan derives from a Dabawenyo greeting "MADAYAW" "DAYAW" meaning beautiful, good. The parade showcases Davao's pride and King of the Fruit - Durian and also, Waling-waling, the queen of the orchids. 
The festival is a week-long celebration, however, the highlight of the festival is during weekends where Indal Indak sa Kadayawan (street dancing)  and Pamulak sa Kadalanan (floral float parade) can be watched at the streets of Davao City. This year 2017, the parade was held right in front of the Marco Polo Hotel. 




It was a grand and festive show from these energetic students - the winners get to take home half a million pesos and that's why all their costumes are all rich in colors and they prepare 1 year for this festival.
