Buglasan 2013 - King & Queen Competition

Buglasan 2013 King & Queen Competition

The Buglasan 2013 King and Queen Competition was as colorful as ever. While it does not draw that much attention as a “Miss pageant”, it is one of the most colorful and flamboyant events of the week-long Buglasan celebration. The costumes are breathtaking and the candidates stunning.  Check out our gallery below and surely you understand what we are talking about.

Buglasan Street Dance Competition and Parade 2013

The highlight of each year’s Buglasan celebration in Negros Oriental is the Street Dance Competition. Of course the Buglasan 2013 Street Dance Competition made no difference. Many thousand spectators lined up on the streets of Dumaguete to watch the competitors.

The Buglasan 2013 Street Dance Competition had 6 contestants, all of them in wonderful costumes with a great choreography. Some connected to the tradition of the region, some theme-based.

It already has been a long day for the groups. They started early morning to show their performance at the Festival Showdown at the Lamberto Macias Sports Complex. After a quick lunch, re-doing the male-up and resting a bit, they lined up in Hibbard Avenue to start the Buglasan 2013 Parade.

The weather was perfect. The sun was smiling and also watching the participants as they started the parade around 2:00pm. Towards the middle of the Street Dance Parade it got a bit cloudy, what was actually nice for the performer, as their job was already hard enough. … the wonderful smiles of the lovely ladies of Negros Oriental shined more than any sun could do anyway.

San Jose, representing the Ayuquitan Festival was the smallest group, but showed a lot of energy which made easily up for the smaller number of participants.
