Ayyoweng Festival at Tadian, Mt. Province: A Celebration Of Creativity and Tradition

It was a festival like no other that city-jaded residents should experience at least once in their lifetime. Devoid of commercialized festival staging, it was a  joy to see the various grassroots communities and families pitching in for the success of the festival. From the grand kids to parents to grandparents, each one took up a responsibility to contribute for the greater good. This community-based Ayyoweng Festival must be the standard of all the region’s festivals, so our festivals in the mountains will remain distinct.***
