2012 Fiesta Pilar Streetdance

this happened thursday, October 11, eve of the Fiesta Pilar.... too bad for my itchy feet i can not go and watch and shoot, it's a workday... i was only able to experience this once, back in 2009 (and well i guess when i was waaayyy younger when my cousins would bring me to watch hehe)... but the Hermosa Festival coverage will not be complete without the streetdance, so i just resorted to zamboanga's good photogs for photos, i just really really want to share how fun and colorful our Hermosa festival celebration is... and how much we (both Muslims and Christians of Zamboanga City) adore Our Lady of the Pillar...

here are wonderful photos of the streetdance by sir Jess Andrew Yu.

  1. It's like Sinulog Festival here in Cebu. I love those time. I can see a lot of people walking around the streets, malls are closed, everybody's eyes are staring to those beautiful dancers gracefully moving their body. :)

  52. Philippines has so many fiestas but I am not fond of celebrating one. I noticed that in provinces, Filipinos put so much effort and money on fiestas, just like here in Bohol.
