The beat of a thousand drums is alive in Iloilo once again. Fifteen participating tribes paraded around the streets of Iloilo for the opening salvo of the Dinagyang Festival 2012. The opening salvo parade is just a preview of the street dance performances during the highlights of the festivities. Better watch out for the main events happening on the fourth weekend of January.
The regional Kasadyahan Cometition is scheduled on Saturday morning, while the Dinagyang Ati Competition will go live on Sunday. Will Tribu Panay still regain its crown? or will the other crowd favorites emerge as this year’s new champion?
