a glimpse of Davao City's famous kadayawan festival



Hello there everyone! It's Friday but to me it's like Saturday or Sunday already, lol!. Everyone in the house is around since it's a national holiday here in my corner of the globe. Anyway, yesterday some errands brought me to the city and so was able to take a peek of this years preparation of Davao's famous the Kadayawan Festival. It is a week-long celebration of life, a thanksgiving for the gifts of nature, the wealth of culture, the bounties of harvest and serenity of living.

Approaching the north end of the metro, you can see banners and signs welcoming visitors from all over the country and the world. Every establishments anywhere like convenience stores, gasoline stations, banks, schools, offices malls, both public and private institutions from small to the biggest has their means of participation by decorating their premises with native products that are Davao's pride.

Here at Davao's Gaisano Mall atrium they hanged the renowned king of fruits and the city's famous Durian along with other fruits in season such as lanzones and rambutan.

and lastly, here's an over view of the city

I was inside the plane that was about to land at the Davao International Airport. The sky was gloomy and rain was about to fall when I took this picture so that's why it looks a bit foggy.

So that wraps up my day yesterday. I went home all tired and droopy the reason why I woke up late this morning. But I'm coping and still wishing to go back to witness the grand day, take lot of pictures while having fun!
