Sandurot Festival 2016 – Dumaguete City

Sandurot Festival 2016

The Sandurot Festival 2016 Street Dancing and Showdown was nothing short of a huge success. Eight contingents from public and private schools as well as from Barangays made downtown Dumaguete to a single big stage where uncountable Dumagueteños were flocking the streets to get a good spot for watching the parade. Many were already securing their seats at 2pm in Quezon Park for the showdown in the evening.

It was just a few minutes past 3pm when the first contingent of the street dancing contest started to dance their way down the Rizal Boulevard in Dumaguete. While the sun was still burning hot it also gave us some great colors for taking pictures, but see yourself.

The enthusiasm and discipline of the smaller public schools dominated the routines of the big names like Silliman or St Pauls and what sounds surprising, but is more than deserved, the contingent of Taclobo High School bagged the overall win.

However, for us there is always a single big winner, and that is the audience. We really don’t care a lot who wins and who comes in last. Everybody who puts his heart and soul into the performance gets our respect. They do their very best to entertain the big audience and deserve our applause.

With a different set up and elevated seats in Quezon Park, more people had a chance of a good spot watching the Sandurot Festival 2016 Showdown. It was a very entertaining event and the thankful audience was cheering and applauding their favorites.

At this point we want to congratulate the organizers who basically managed to have all three different parts of the Festival starting pretty much in time. A difficult task which not many manage to get right.
