In a festival full of great events, Buglasan King and Queen 2015 competition usually takes place on the busiest day. Friday night after the Buglasan Showdown and the Street Dance competition
One declared favorite of each years Buglasan celebration is the Ballroom & Folk Dance Competition. It is usually held as together on one evening and showcases the beauty, grace, tradition and talents of the young Negrense.
Dumaguete’s 66th Charter Day celebration and the Sandurot Festival 2014 is perfectly placed between Buglasan and Christmas. The event loaded 10 days celebration is held from November 16 to 25, 2014. The highlights being the Charter Day Parade and of course the Miss Dumaguete 2014 Pageant, where last year’s winner Lorraine Kendrickson became just recently the 1st princess of Miss World Philippines 2014.
The Sandurot Festival and 66th Charter Day celebration start very sportive with the Dumaguete Adventure Marathon and the Karatedo competition. In the evening the candidates for Miss Dumaguete 2014 present their talent at the stage at Quezon Park to determine who will follow Lorraine as new Miss Dumaguete 2014.

The host of the Rap and Hip Hop Dance Competition at Freedom Park Buglasan was a great one. He didn’t waste so much time to start the show. Right after the prayer and national anthem the show started with the screaming audience..
The audience was so exited and couldn’t be controlled not to go near the stage, but the host that night was polite asking the people to keep off the stage.

Buglasan 2014 – Rondalla, Balak, Balitaw, pride and culture of Negros Oriental
Sidlakan Dance Company Concert and the Rondalla-, Kumparsa-, and Balak, Balitaw Competitions were a blast. It is great to see the Facebook generation honoring our tradition and performing. We had so much fun there and all performers did a wonderful job. Everybody who just waits for the Beauty competitions and Street-dance parades is missing out on the traditional heart and soul of the Buglasan festival.
Sidlakan Dance Company
The evening started off at 7:00pm with a 1 hour show of the Sidlakan Dance Company. Different Groups from Junior to seniors performed their traditional and modern dances and entertained the audience perfectly.
Kumparsa & Rondalla Competition
Balak a night of Visayan poetry
And of course there is no competition without awarding
Here the official Results of last nights competition provided by Negros Oriental Tourism
Only in the Philippines
If one looks at the result, one may wonder who is the winner of the Junior Rondalla division. There was only ONE competitor, but they came in only on the SECOND place. “Only in the Philippines” is the only explanation one can find. Rumors have it that the young fellow in the picture below was so upset, that he took of his shoes to throw it at the judges, but then decided to give the judges his Kindergarten math book, so they can figure out that it is not possible to be second out of one competitor.
The Civic & Military Parade of Buglasan 2014 was under a burning sun on Saturday afternoon and it would not have been a problem to fry a sunny-side-up egg on the tarmac of the roads.. When all VIP, VUPs, LGUs and marching Bands finally arrived, it got on its way from Quezon Park to the Sidlakan Negros Village where the school marching band competition was held.
