  • I like KdaI like Kadayawan Festival of Davao because its festivities, color and merrymaking. It also a time for us to visit my younger brother who is based in Davao and have some quality fun time together.

  • My favorite Philippine festival is the Ati-atihan because it is so fascinating — a rousing interplay of colors and sounds. It is so much fun to be a part of it. Hala Bira!!!

  • I’d say Sinulog is my favorite of all the Philippine festivals. Back when it wasn’t the commercialized tourist attraction it was today, you can see everyone dancing to the beat of the drums. It’s fun and engaging. It’s also fun comparing the different costumes and choosing which one’s the best. Nowadays though, everyone’s just aiming to get that “perfect” photo for their blogs and whatnot.

  • Fave festival is Sinulog of Cebu, firstly because I am Cebuano. Secondly, because it is the biggest cultural and spiritual event in Cebu, far bigger than Christmas and New Year! 🙂

  • My favorite Philippine festival is of course the Higantes Festival here in my hometown Angono, Rizal because of the fun activities like Misa Cantada, novena, song and dance contests, fried “itik” festival and cooking competition, a 5k Fun Run, on-the-spot painting contest, art exhibit, job fair, bingo and videoke challenge, and of course, the highlights of the festivities — the Race of the Higantes and the Procession of the Pagoda. 🙂

  • I love the Bangus festival of Dagupan. I remember attending it when I was just a little girl during my regular visits to my cousin in Dagupan. I loved seeing the different bangus dishes, the aroma of the fishes being cooked, and, of course, eating them!

  • My fave festival here in the Philippines is the Panagbenga Festival in Baguio (too bad I won’t be able to experience one this year). . . This is simply because it is the time of the year wherein flowers in Baguio are in full bloom and it is absolutely beautiful to be in there to witness such an awesome and very inspiring event! Freezing weather surrounded with colorful flowers!!! SUPER LIKE 🙂

  • Jose Lorenzo Manongsong on

    My favorite is Pahiyas Festival because it is colorful and the decorated houses are also beautiful. 🙂

  • Panagbenga will be my favorite because this promotes the care for nature and environment as well as showcases beautiful varieties of flowers found in the Philippines.

  • im a mom of 2 boys who loves to eat. plus a hubby who loves food too… no wonder!!! i express my love to them by cooking for them… i bet, these recipes will make them happy… hope i win..

    more power!!!

  • The Philippines has many treasures that Filipinos should be proud of. One of them is the unique festivals that they celebrate. among the Philippine Festivals,My favorite festival is the Pahiyas Festival in Quezon because the citizens of Quezon found a really creative and unique way of being thankful for their bountiful harvests. The decorations are really beautiful and colorful. Also, the use of ECO-FRIENDLY decorations is another plus.

    I hope that I could win this giveaway! thank you for the opportunity 🙂

  • PANAGBENGA FESTIVAL. The different kinds of flowers totally blow me away. I like the different colors and when you’re there watching, it makes you so alive.

  • I love the panagbenga festival because of the beautiful float that presented all over the city of baguio. and you can see how the Filipino is really creative.

  • My favorite Philippine festival is Panagbenga Festival too!
    Goodthing I’m not the only one who appreciates nature. xD
    This is my favorite festival since it shows how beautiful Philippines is…
    and because I love how the flowers bloom and take diff. colors.
    Whenever I attend this festival, I just can’t help it but smile…
    Looking at those different floats filled with laughter….. Looking at those breathtaking views… It makes me feel I’m in paradise :))

  • What is your favorite Philippine festival and why?

    I guess my favorite festival here in the philippines would be that of the sinulog festival. Maybe it’s the hype of the festival or the crazy and wild fun filipinos get from having this festival is the one luring me in to join the festival! The best reason I can give would be that in a way such festivals offer a unique way for filipinos to interact with each other, thinking of each and everyone equally! That’s why the festivals in the philippines is a lot more fun! 🙂
