Project Cabanatuan: 62nd Araw ng Cabanatuan 2012

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. 

Loved the pose!  Give na give!  LOL!

I will visit Cabanatuan again at the end of this month and will try and make more blog entries about the place. #It'sMoreFunInThePhilippines

Actually different places in the Philippines have different festivals. They normally have streetdancers and contest. This was my first time to witness this. Where are you from? :)Thanks for dropping by.
