The Wayboga Festival 2016 of Municipality of Amlan was held for the 5th time. The festivities are held to celebrate the smoke-free community. Amlan declared itself a smoke-free community seven years ago as one of the first in Negros Oriental. During this years celebration four schools showcased their dances to thousands of spectators along the streets of the town of Amlan. The showdown was held in the evening at the municipality gym. Following some images in unsorted order.
The assembly for the street dancing was around 2:00pm starting at 3:00pm. The sun was burning down when the groups started their performances through the streets. with all respect to all organizers and choreographers, having on group dancing in thin black socks on streets where one could fire easily an egg on should just not happen.
