Festive Town

March 8, 2010

The inhabitants of the city within a forest are quite a festive bunch! It seems like they have some festive event going on every month.

I was lucky enough to have participated in one such festival, The Balayong Festival. The event commemorates the city’s founding anniversary and is named after the Palawan Cherry Blossom. Some of the activities of the festival include Balayong planting, street dancing and a flower parade. The culmination of the event  is an awarding ceremony for outstanding accomplishments of notable Princesans and the crowning of Ms. Puerto Princesa.
