PHILIPPINE CONSULATE GENERAL JOINS KADAYAWAN 2019
Chicago 07 August 2019 – The Philippine Consulate General graced the Davao Association of the Midwest Kadayawan Festival 2019, held at the Diplomat West Banquets, 681 W. North Ave. Elmhurst, Illinois 60126 on Saturday, 03 August 2019.
The even is an annual festival in celebration of life, health, and all things good. The festival’s roots are in the rituals of the region’s indigenous tribes who gathered to pray for a bountiful harvest, but it has since evolved to become one of the major festivals on the Philippine calendar. It is also a celebration of how Davao City is blessed “not just with natural resources but favorable climate conditions, a thriving economy and peace and order.”
The highlights of the event were the Parade of Beauties wearing their ethnic costumes, a cultural dance show to the tune of “INDAK INDAK”, and the coronation of Hiyas ng Kadayawan 2019. END.
