Sandurot Festival 2014 - Showdown

Sandurot 2014 – Street Dance & Showdown

Hot – Hotter – Sandurot 2014 Street Dance Parade. The sun was burning down at 3:00pm, when the participants of the streetdance parade started moving from Portal West via Perdices- and Real Street back to Quezon Park where later the Showdown took place.  All spectators who were not busy finding a spot on in the shade or boiling eggs on the street saw some great performances of all participating schools.

Sandurot Festival 2014 – Showdown

The national Broadcast of Sky Cable was probably the reason that the Showdown of this years Sandurot Festival started perfectly in time on 5:00 pm. Bottomline, it can be done!  Maybe the organizers of the Miss Dumaguete Coronation Night should take a seminar at Sky Cable how to plan ad execute a fast paced event, instead of stretching a little over 5 hours.

Buglasan 2014 – Showdown and Street Dance

The Buglasan 2014 – Showdown and Street Dance was traditionally held on Friday. This day was also a special regional holiday. As it could be expected, the Macias Sports Complex and the streets of Dumaguete were packed and it appeared that whole Negros Oriental came to its capital to enjoy the festival of festivals. After all judges, politicians, celebrities and beauty-queens were present, the show finally could start.

Buglasan 2014 Showdown

Eight participants were competing in different categories. The ninth performer was Sta. Catalina with the famous Pakol Festival. They did not participate, as their little monkeys always got the heart of the audience and the judges and basically won all Buglasan competitions over the last years. For this achievement, they got rewarded with the “Golden Slam” and a nice big trophy. It need to be said that Sibulans Yag Yag festival would be a serious competitor for the dance-troop from Sta Catalina and it would be a close call who gets the title at Buglasan 2014 – Showdown and Street Dance.
