Event | Pasko Fiesta sa Davao 2017: "Candied"!

City Hall of Davao: Filled with Lights, Decorations and People
Pasko Fiesta sa Davao is an annual event of the City Government of Davao to celebrate the festive atmosphere of the Christmas season. This year's theme is a Candy Land. That is why you'll see colorful, round, sweet-looking decorations in the seat of power in the city. The event is also participated by the barangays as each barangay lit their places with colorful lights and designs, and joined some contests prepared by the city.

Christmas in the country is not complete without caroling. At the City Hall, there are chorale groups invited to serenade the people with Christmas songs and each group perform for an hour. This event is called the Panayegon sa Davao. This isn't a contest; this is different from the contest set for the event. The City Hall seems like an orchestra hall when the chorale groups sing and people listen.

It is such a charming and lovely way to feel the vibe of Christmas with fellow locals and visitors who flock the city center. Aside from the decorations in the City Hall, there are nearby public spaces where related activities are conducted, too, like the KaanDabaw: a Davao Night Food Market.

You will also see the giant lantern given by the Province of Pampanga as a gift to the People of Davao. This giant lantern is said to be Kadayawan-themed. It is so humbling to see such a gesture of gift giving from the province in the north to this city in the south.

There are really more activities set for the Pasko Fiesta. Below is the roster of events credit to the City Government of Davao. I am much awaiting for the Lamdag Parada or the Light Parade of various participants, this is also joined by a marching band. I am so excited! I hope you are, too!
