Araw ng Davao

I had fun chatting with my friend today. She said they celebrate Araw ng Davao yesterday. Araw ng Davao is a vibrant feast held every March 16 of the year. Araw ng Davao means a birthday celebration of the city. Davao is the largest city in Mindanao. According to my friend, it's now the 72nd anniversary and the theme is "Pagtupad sa Dakilang Pangako" which means Fulfilling the Noble Promise in English. There are many festivities such as colorful parade, exhibit, Sports fest, Dance in the street, beauty pageant, trade fairs, cultural presentations and many more. I Miss it!
