TRIBU PANAYANON: 2013 Aliwan Festival champion


Aliwan means entertainment or amusement, and thus Aliwan Festival delivers just that. Dubbed as the "Mother of All Fiestas", Aliwan Festival started in 2003 and gathers annually the different cultural festivals all over the Philippines. Each participant from the different regions in the country showcases the richness of their heritage and culture. This is also an opportunity for them to promote their respective regions for the Philippines and the whole world to see.




And for four consecutive years now a Dinagyang Festival champion has brought home another winning moment for the Ilonggos. Tribu Panayanon (composed of students from Iloilo City High School), the 2013 Dinagyang champion, competed with much energy and a truly captivating performance which made them the grand champion of Aliwan Festival 2013. The tribe also grabbed the Best in Music and Costume awards.
