Philippines – Top 10 Best Festivals 2014 HD

Kadayawan Festival is being celebrated every 3rd Week of August. The festival is a celebration of life, a thanksgiving for the gifts of nature, the wealth of culture, the bounties of harvest and serenity of living. The festival is celebrated with street dancing in colorful costumes. A variety of tribes parade the streets with their tribal costumes and jewelry. There is also the horsefight, an animal show similar to the bullfight in Spain. The Moriones is held on Holy Week on the island of Marinduque. The participants use masks to depict the Roman soldiers and Syrian mercenaries within the story of the Passion of the Christ. The Moriones refers to the masked and costumed penitents who march around the town for seven days searching for Longinus. The Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta is an annual event that occurs between January and February in Clark Freeport Zone. It features multicolored hot air balloons from around the world. The festival, held during the month of February, was created as a tribute to the city's flowers and as a way to rise up from the devastation of the 1990 Luzon earthquake. The festival includes floats that are covered mostly with flowers, and street dancing, presented by dancers clad in flower-inspired costumes. The Masskara Festival held every third weekend of October is a celebration which has earned for Bacolod the title "City of Smiles". Major activities include the MassKara Queen beauty pageant, carnivals, drum and bugle corps competitions, food festivals, sports events, musical concerts, agriculture-trade fairs, garden shows, and other special events organized every year. San Fernando is famous for being the site of the crucifixion ceremony that takes place on Good Friday each year. It includes a passion play culminating with the actual nailing of at least three penitents to a wooden cross atop the makeshift Calvary. The penitents are taken down when they feel cleansed of their sin. The Pahiyas Festival is celebrated every year on May 15. It is in honor of San Isidro Labrador, the patron saint of farmers in the Philippines. The Ati-Atihan Festival is a feast held annually in honor of the Santo Nino (Infant Jesus), concluding on the third Sunday of January. The festival consists of dance, music, and parade along the street. The Sinulog is an annual cultural and religious festival held on the third Sunday of January. The Sinulog commemorates the Filipino people's acceptance of Christianity, and their rejection of their former animist beliefs. The Dinagyang is a religious and cultural festival held on the fourth Sunday of January. It's a colorful parade coupled with a dramatization in honor of St. Nino.

  2. Lets admit that sinulog in cebu is the Grandest but Dinagyang in Iloilo is the best cultural event in the philippines!!!
    Well in terms in performance mas maganda sa Dinagyang kahit sakalsada lng nag peperform eh 5 performing area din nmn yung kanilang pineperforman and that effort deserve to be respected at way din nmn yun nang pagiging pilipino natin dahil it's a cultural event hindi payaman yaman!!!!
    Maganda din nmn yung Sinulog Gradyoso yun lamang eh sa performance mas parapang sumasayaw ay yung props lang di ko nanakikita yung mga dancers nanagsasayaw!!!
    But all in all lahat ng Festival ay maganda!!!

  3. Cguro taga ilo-ilo ang gumawa nito…no one can replce da most beautiful festival in da phil only sinulog…!!

    sa mga taga iloilo.,,sa kanila the best yung dinagyang festival well sa mga taga cebu nmn the best yung sinulog festival..pero since taga cebu ako dun ako sa sinulog…pero kahit anong festival yan the best nmn talaga lahat bsta ang importante masaya ka sa festival..aishhh bakit kinukumpara nyo ang mga festivals kung sino ang the best..ang festivals hindi nmn yun nakabase sino talaga ang magaling at sino ang pinakabongga at sino yung the best.ang festival ay event na cinecelebrate ng mga tao at nagsasayahan at nanalangin kung sino ang ilang ni nanalangin at hindi ito competition

  5. Kainin nyo dinagyang nyo kahit itaga nyo pa sa bato never kayong naging number 1 hahaha mga pilingero ehh hindi nyo pa nga napaganda yung lungsod nyo festival nyo pa kaha

  6. Si mr,google lang ang makapagsabi for me dinagyang is not sa attractive naka fucos lang yung mga tao sa dancing dancing hindi kagaya ng sinulog from opening salvo millions na ang nagvivisit

  7. Pangit yung dinagyang talaga ehh poor yung mga tao hindi kagaya ng sinulog grand talaga ang lahat at dahil din sa cebu lumaganap ang christianity sa buong pilipinas at ang original na milagrosong santo niño na sa cebu rin

  8. Don't u know na sinulog festival is the grandest festival in the Philippines? in fact yung ibang provinces sumali like leyte etc. one question lang sa nag upload what is your basis and travel expert kaba?

  9. sinulog tae
    is the best more langaw the best pampatulog tandan ang bisaya pinaka mabababang tao sa lipunan wla kaung ipag mamayabang.dahil pinag tatawansn lng ng tao at inaasar ang mga visaya
    sa msnila

  10. Hahhah.. Dinagyang parang pang barangayan lng.. Matagal na ang sinulog sa cebu na idenklara sa the grandest and the biggest festival of all the festivals in the Philippines

  11. Dinagyang the cheapest festival.. 😂🤣🤣😂😂 very poor walang budget sa arena nasa kalsada lang and it only draws thousands of audience wheras Sinulog draws millions of spectators not just the locals in the Philippines but also doriegn countries.. all our thousands of hotels are fully booked thats why the business during that time is very lively.

  12. I believe dinagyang is one of a kind. And da best of all. Kya taon taon bumibisita ako just to experience. Sinulog is ok for me. But dinagyang and iloilo is amazing. And their people as well very humble.

  13. aminin na natin lahat na ang sinulog ang pinaka the best, top 1 in the grandest festival, top 1 in the most colorful festival, top 1 in the craziest festival, top 1 in the events festivals, top 1 in street party festival, top 1 in the most foreign who joins, top 1 the the most actors, actresses and personalities who joins, top 1 in many cities and municipalities participants outside cebu, and top 1 in the most foreign medias and bloggers who connects, filmed and documents. also the most enjoy festival in asia.
