DINAGYANG FESTIVAL is a celebration in honor of Sr. Sto. Niño, held every fourth weekend of January. The City of Iloilo is transformed into virtual stages as thousands of local and foreign tourists mix it up dancing with local devotees and costumed soot-covered atis tribe members to the beat of drums, xylophones and just any other instruments to create sounds.

To know more about DINAGYANG FESTIVAL, just check the website:

Hala, bira! Pwera pasma!!
Would you believe Iloilo is just an hour and a half bus-ride from Roxas pero wala pa gid ako makakadto da para mag-Dinagyang? How I wish I could -- in the future :)

Hope you'll post your Dinagyang photos here!
