Hudyaka sa Bais City
The term “hudyaka” means celebration. For some reason, the tourism office of Bais decided to focus on the rise of sugar cane production in the city. With this, instead of calling it Hudyaka Festival 2018, it was named Tapasayaw Festival 2018. Why tapasayaw you may ask? The term is made out of two words “tapas” and “sayaw” which means the act of harvesting sugar cane and dance; respectively. Despite whatever it is officially called, the term Hudyaka Festival in Bais will remain in the hearts of true festive goers.

The street dancing started around 1:30 pm in the afternoon. Despite the heat, all the performers did their best to smile and enjoy the festivity.
After the street dancing, hundreds of people gathered at the Bais Gym filling every square meter of concrete. The task forces had a hard time moving people and clearing the dance floor for the performers. Nevertheless, they somehow cooperated and it the Hudyaka Festival 2018 showdown proceed.
