On the Spot | Aliwan Fiesta 2014 Photographs

Tagged as the “Festival of Festivals" or “Festival of Champions”, Aliwan Fiesta is an annual gathering of the grandest and most colorful festivals in the Philippines. 

Aliwan Fiesta 2014

Today, April 26, 2014, I was lucky enough to witness this grandest gathering of the most colorful festivals of the country. The usual street of Pasay and Manila became vibrant and alive; this is indeed the hottest gathering of the festivals across Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao!

Aliwan Fiesta 2014

This 3-day event, organized by Manila Broadcasting Company (MBC), in partnership with the Cities of Manila and Pasay and the Cultural Center of the Philippines, happened this year from April 24-26, 2014.

The main event is the Grand Parade and street dancing competition from Quirino Grandstand passing through Roxas Boulevard, going to showdown area in front of Aliw Theater at the CCP Complex, Manila.

  1. The writer of this blog has provided great information about Aliwan Fiesta 2014. The images of this festival are really attractive. It’s my pleasure that I have attended this festival before niagara falls bus tour. it’s an annual event that gathers special cultural festivals of the Philippines at Star City Complex. It’s divided into three different categories. One of its part related to Cultural Street Dance Competition, second one is about Float Parade and the last one show the entertainment.
