Aliwan Fiesta 2019: Street Dance Competition


Competing Float from Cotabato City

Aliwaaaaaaaaan… Fiesta! – this is what you will always hear once the speakers turn on just outside Aliw theater, accompanied with upbeat festival music, drumbeats, occasional news breaks, and typical Filipino advertisements.

Walking through the streets of Vicente Sotto, or around the festival area during Aliwan week will constantly remind you of the major events you shouldn’t miss, the eclectic food choices, and activities for the whole family to enjoy.

I personally love celebrations and festivals, specially the ones celebrated in The Philippines. That’s why I made it a point not to miss the Street Dance Competition at Aliwan Fiesta 2019. I recorded all performances to share them with everyone:
