I have been absent from the Dinagyang Festival for the last two years. But this time I made it a point to watch the festival again.
Although I may not have personally seen the Dinagyang performances in 2012 and 2013, I was able to review their dances through Youtube and was able to see them perform live at the Aliwan Fiesta.
Bacolod City may be known for the more popular MassKara Festival held every October. But during the Chinese New Year, the Bacoleños have their own way of painting the town red.

One of the biggest Provincial Festivals of the Philippines, the annual Panaad sa Negros is set to unfold again this summer season!
One of the events that I always look forward to during summer season when I was still based in Bacolod City was the Panaad sa Negros Festival, or simply known as Panaad.

Kasadyahan Festival has always been a part of the Dinagyang Festival celebration. But I can still remember during my younger years, the event is held on a Saturday before the Grand Ati Competition. But during those times, Kasadyahan is only participated by schools from around Iloilo.
Looking at their performances at the TV, I can say Kasadyahan Festival before was boring, and lacks Wow Factor.
