Today the City of Tacloban is all set for the Sangyaw Festival 2009. This is the second time the festival has been staged since its revival last year.
Sangyaw is actually a fiesta celebrated during the 70′s during the time when Imelda Romualdez Marcos was still the First Lady of the Philippines. In fact, it was her who initiated to have this event. It was also the Romualdez’s who revived the Sangyaw last year.
This year’s Festival event would feature the Cebu City Sinulog Festival, Masskara Festival from Bacolod, Isabela Basilan’s Cocowayan Festival, Iloilo City Dinagyang Festival, Surigao City’s Bonok Bonok Marajaw Karajaw Festival, Santiago City’s Pattaradday Festival, Basey’s Kawayan-Banigan Festival, Legazpi’s Magayon Festival and Tacloban City’s Tribu Kabatuk.
Last year, the grand prize winner was the Tribu Kabatok of Tacloban followed by the Lumad Basakanon of Sinulog Festival. Bacolod City’s Masskara Festival performed as a guest participant only.
