30th Kadayawan Sa Dabaw Schedule of Activities

Since birth, I really have no personal experience with Kadayawan sa Dabaw though I live just an hour away from the city. I haven’t seen the Hudyakan sa Kadayawan in person, none of the activities during the festival I ever attended. This year will be the first time that I am going to the event.
I watch the parade and other activities only on television, all I know was it’s colorful and fun. I was not allowed to go due to security issues, but Davao has proven for years that there’s nothing to worry about. Thus, I am coming! I married young so and was always left with the kids, but now that they are old enough, I am now free to ramp and enjoy the festivities. Plus the fact that my job as a general virtual assistant gave me the luxury to choose the time I want to do my job.
Since I am so excited, I want to share with you the schedule for the 30th Kadayawan Sa Dabaw. Below is the photo I got from the official Facebook page of Davao City Tourism. Enjoy and hope to see you there!

SARBAY Pa More! #SarbayForever2015

So this is my first time attending Sarbay Festival in Saranggani. I was so curious about the festival since it was really the talk of the town in Social Networks. We went on the final day and that was Saturday, apparently the busiest day of the festival.We’re a group of 12 and brought two SUV’s with us. From Davao City going to General Santos City took us 3 hours with less traffic during the trip and another hour from Gensan to Saranggani.  As expected, the place is already jam-packed with people and cars lining up looking for a place to park.

We are lucky enough to find a spot closer to the area. It was not a very nice experience for me since it was raining almost the whole time I was there. We managed to find a place where we can have our tents built but still later on decided to sleep inside the car due to drunk people. Security is not a question since there’s a lot of police patrolling around the area.

The best part is getting drunk and get to dance and party all night! Well of course I am not a heavy drinker, just consumed one bottle of San Mig light the whole night. I bet my friends and cousins enjoyed SARBAY Fest so much. The party ended with a lot of fireworks! Yes, for about 15 minutes of fireworks display, we didn’t mind the rain at all! Sarbay pa more as they say!!! I hope to be back and get to enjoy more  of Sarbay Festival next year still with the same group!
