Travel Photography: Aliwan Fiesta 2014 - The Grand Festival of Champions

April 28, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Aliwan Fiesta harnesses the power of Philippine festivals to showcase how religion, culture, and tradition are woven into the fiber of our existence. Traditional fiestas, which are held annually to commemorate the foundation of a town or province, or honoring its patron saint, are brought together en masse to highlight the Pinoy’s indomitable and ebullient spirit, together with his mien for creativity and innovation. With most major fiestas rooted in the pre-colonial period, there is understandably a festival sector that celebrates Nature’s bounty. Our Filipino forebears worshipped pagan gods who, to them, were responsible for bountiful harvests on land and sea.

Aliwan Fiesta is being held every year in Manila. The event is dubbed as the "Festival of Champions" wherein different festivals from all over the country gathered and compete in three major events - festival float competition, Reyna ng Aliwan and Aliwan Fiesta Street dance competition.
