Davao is famous for its Mt. Apo as the Philippines' highest peak; Durian as the king of fruits(of which some tagged to be "smells like hell but taste like heaven"); and Waling-waling as the queen of orchids. It is also a haven of the awesome Philippine Eagle as the national bird.
The bountiful harvest of flowers, fruits and its ethnic culture gave birth to a "Kadayawan Festival" as the folks of Davao's thanksgiving celebration for the abundance of it all. The festivity is held every month of August (every 3rd week of August) as a long week celebration of the lumads of Davao. Kadayawan festival showcases a lot of performances by the Davaoenos including float parade and "Katutubo" dance contest as one of the highlights of the event while wearing their colorful native costume.
Come to my place now and join us in this remarkable festive!Madayaw Dabaw! Dali na kamo!:)
