    Dinagyang Festival 2012



    The root word is dagyang. In Ilonggo, it means to make happy. Dinagyang is the present progressive word of the Ilonggo word, meaning making merry or merry-making. A religious and cultural activity, it is a celebration of Ilonggos whose bodies are painted with black in effect to imitate the black, small and slender Negritos who are the aborigines of Panay. The warriors are dressed in fashionable and colorful Aeta costumes and dance artistically and rhythmically with complicated formations along with the loud thrashing and sound of drums.

    The Dinagyang Festival is celebrated every fourth weekend of January (just after Sinulog) to honor the Christianization of the natives and to respect the Holy Child Jesus.

    -----------------

    well, so much for that. thank you mr google for the introduction. last weekend, me and some Davao photographer friends went to Iloilo to see Dinagyang festival. lots of beer, walking, el-oh-els, more beer, and pedo crew action

    so without further ado, here's some shots from DINAGYANG FESTIVAL. enjoy

    and of course, festivals such as this will not be complete without the lovely ladies parading their beauty across the town and for the whole nation to see
