Tawo Tawo Festival 2015 – Showdown
28th Tawo-Tawo Festival
The Tawo Tawo Festival 2015 in Bayawan City marked its 28th of its kind. The festival is certainly one of the most famous celebrations of whole Negros Island. What need to be mentioned in a very positive way is the organization. Mr. Eli G. Malangit runs a tight, well thought through, and intelligent office.
Therefore it is not surprising that the showdown as well as the street-dancing started in time. An event starting in real-world time is in the Philippines as rare as an ice-block in the Sahara.
Mr. Malangit told the Dumaguete.com team: “I can not let the children sitting and waiting in the heat for some VIPs and officials to arrive. We start in time !“.
Tawo-Tawo Festival Showdown
The Tawo-Tawo 2015 Showdown started at 10:00 am. At that point most participants were already up and practicing since hours. The sun was already burning and if anybody needed a quick breakfast, it would have been no problem to boil an egg on the cemented grounds. The opening speeches were kept pleasantly brief and the first group got ready. Nine contingents were participating. Five in the Gagmay/Junior Tawo-Tawo category, four in the Dagko/Senior Tawo-Tawo category. Following some pictures (not sorted by contingents).
