Western Visayan fests vie for Kasadyahan title

A total of seven festival groups have confirmed their participation to the Kasadyahan celebration on January 21, a prelude to the Dinagyang Ati Tribes competition the next day.

Those who are joining from Negros Occidental are El Cinco de Noviembre of Bago City and Kansilay of Silay City; from Iloilo are Salakayan Festival of Miagao and Montogawe of Mina; Sinadya sa Halaran of Roxas City, Capiz; and Sinulog and Palayag of Guimaras province.

Kasadyahan committee chairperson, Dr. Eden Deriada, said they are still waiting for the confirmation of Antique’s Binirayan Festival, Bacolod’s Masskara Festival and Kalibo’s Ati-Atihan.

She said the celebration next year is expected to be more spectacular as fiestas and festivals from all over Western Visayas gather here to compete for Kasadyahan 2012 for the first time.

A P100,000 initial subsidy will be given by the Iloilo Dinagyang Foundation Inc. to participating groups.
