King & Queen - Buglasan 2014

Buglasan 2014 – King & Queen Competition

The King & Queen Competition of Buglasan 2014 was in our humble opinion the absolute highlight of the activities on the stage at Freedom Park. Eight gracious candidates were competing for the Queen title together with eight gentlemen who were in the contest for this years Buglasan King. The contest happened after a whole day of strenuous activities, starting with the showdown early morning, followed by the street dance parade.

Rap and Hip Hop Dance Competition at Freedom Park Buglasan

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.Hip-Hop dancer in dumaguete

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.

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.
