The Buglasan 2014 – Showdown and Street Dance was traditionally held on Friday. This day was also a special regional holiday. As it could be expected, the Macias Sports Complex and the streets of Dumaguete were packed and it appeared that whole Negros Oriental came to its capital to enjoy the festival of festivals. After all judges, politicians, celebrities and beauty-queens were present, the show finally could start.
Eight participants were competing in different categories. The ninth performer was Sta. Catalina with the famous Pakol Festival. They did not participate, as their little monkeys always got the heart of the audience and the judges and basically won all Buglasan competitions over the last years. For this achievement, they got rewarded with the “Golden Slam” and a nice big trophy. It need to be said that Sibulans Yag Yag festival would be a serious competitor for the dance-troop from Sta Catalina and it would be a close call who gets the title at Buglasan 2014 – Showdown and Street Dance.
