Project Cabanatuan is my personal writing challenge. I wanted to write about the place that I grew up in. Luckily, it was fiesta ng bayan when I visited.
The 62nd Araw ng Cabanatuan was celebrated for 7 days. It started with 3 days of music and dancing followed by sports competition, street dancing, longganisa festival, Miss Gay Cabanatuan and Miss Cabanatuan and fun run. I only went to the final 2 days of the music and dance fest and street dancing competition. I lived in Cabanatuan for 10 years but never experienced any of these. When I was younger, the fiesta isn't as lively. Thanks to the effort of the present mayor, Mayor Jay Vergara, we were able to enjoy the fiesta. :)
I woke up early to witness the street dancing. I haven't seen anything in my life and I was very excited. Good thing I wasn't disappointed. I was surprised how creative high school students were with their costumes. The "green avatar" is my personal favourite.
