After roaming Iloilo City during the Dinagyang Festival in the Philippines, we got to sit down and enjoyed a chicken barbecue on one of the stalls along Valeria Street near SM Iloilo, which I learned was renamed SM Delgado. 
Although their Iloilo-style marinate was different from that of Bacolod City's chicken inasal, they still gave you the soy sauce and calamansi dip to add flavor to every bite.

Of course, I also had my mandatory Coke.

During the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines, the popular Valeria Street is full of rows and rows of barbecue stalls, whose smoking grills are so inviting you'd feel hungry. 
You can order chicken barbecue, pork or any other seafood which they can grill for you on the spot.

Things I will miss: fiestas and community gatherings! 🎉🎊🎉 Whether it is Ati-Atihan in nearby Kalibo, pictured here, or Roxas' Halaran, Christmas festivities, All Saints'/Souls' Day, or birthdays, there is always a reason to gather here. 
P.S. 21 days. Three. Weeks.

Since these ati tribes participating at Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines  festival are from local high schools, these students are actually put in the same sections in order to make it easier for the school officials to arrange the rehearsal schedules as well as the makeup classes.

And the school officials and teachers always remind them that they are not in competition with other schools, but instead to always give their best.

This way, the performers, which are all classmates, have easier time working and learning the whole performance dance and routine because they personally know each other. 
And this whole concept clearly shows on how the performers behave with or without judges (or me!) watching.😁 #dinagyang #dinagyangfestival #iloilocity #iloilo #festival #atiatihan #travel #tourism #tourist #itsmorefuninthePhilippines #Philippines #blogger #travelblog #culture #history #panay #art #costumes #teamwork #exploreph #explorephilippines

Queen Nefertiti and her bodyguard were the most comfortably seated during the parade at Iloilo City's Dinagyang Festival in the Philippines. Their counterparts were down on the streets walking.

I actually went up to these two to take their photo up close, but Nefertiti was entertaining the crowd to her right. 
I then signalled her bodyguard to call her attention and to look straight into my smartphone. And she did. With a smile.

Well, she might be a queen but I still gave the orders.😁 #dinagyang #dinagyangfestival #iloilocity #iloilo #festival #atiatihan #travel #tourism #tourist #itsmorefuninthePhilippines #Philippines #blogger #travelblog #culture #history #panay #art #costumes #fashion #headdress #creative #parade #egyptian #pharoah

After the competition at the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines, the performers in their colorful costumes roam the streets of the city where they pose with everyone who wants their photo taken with them. 
I chanced upon these performers from Tribu Ilonganon along  the busy Iznart Street posing with a fan.

I chanced upon the Tribu Salognon performers while they were on their way to the next performance area. Here, I asked to pose with their tribe pole bearer, but it looked like I was trying to steal the tribe's pole. Ha-ha-ha!

Tribu Salognon of the Jaro National High School was eventually declared as the champions at the 2017 Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines. The pole bearer was probably the school's PE teacher😁. #dinagyang #dinagyangfestival #iloilocity #iloilo #festival #atiatihan #travel #tourism #tourist #itsmorefuninthePhilippines #Philippines #blogger #travelblog #culture #history #panay #art #costumes #fashion #exploreph #explorephilippines #fun #Jaro

This señorita is carrying a Sto. Niño as part of her role in her tribu's performance at the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines. 
The icon she's carrying must be a bit heavy and her dress a bit uncomfortable under the sun. But I guess she's up to the challenge.

To rest our legs while roaming around the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines, we stopped at the Starbucks. 
Walking around Iloilo City wasn't actually tiring because of the festive atmosphere. 
And with most of the streets closed, navigating the city center as pedestrians was easy and safe.

Tribu Abiador, competing at Iloilo City's Dinagyang Festival in the Philippines, represented the Asian College of Aeronautics. Its warriors and performers were actually future pilots.

Not sure if their tribe-name bearer is a pilot or an actual warrior. But pilot or not, he was also having #fun.

This performer at the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines walks to her tribe's next performance area dressed in ethnic colors and wearing a very elaborate headdress that probably took weeks to make. 
But looking at the details, design and ornaments of her dress, I think it probably took even longer to make.

Since it's a sunny Sunday morning at the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines, everyone wanted to snack around the #parade route. Luckily, we chanced upon a street vendor selling tofu with caramel, or 'taho'. I had to buy a cup for ten Philippine pesos, or 20 US cents.

Glam squad: In-between performances the performers at the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines have to 'retouch' as sweat erased their face paint.

Since the tribes competing at Iloilo City's Dinagyang Festival in the Philippines  had to move from one performance area to another, they temporarily put their props and costumes on a rolling storage. This allowed them to free themselves from the heavy costumes.

They later pick them up to wear them again before their next performance.

Competing at the Dinagyang Festival is all hard work.

These señoritas at the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines, with all the required dancing during their five performances and all the walking through the parade route, didn't have to wear uncomfortable shoes.

I noticed they wore rubber strapped sandals to make things easier for them.

That's why they could run around comfortably and still have time for selfies.

Walking along the street to her tribe's next performance at the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines, this lady in her yellow gown alone was eye-catching. 
But that huge headdress full of yellow flowers was unique. And probably heavy to carry and very hot under the sun.

The #AtiAtihan Festival is a feast held annually in January in honor of the #SantoNiño (Infant Jesus), concluding on the third Sunday in #Kalibo #Aklan.  The name "Ati-Atihan" means "to be like Aetas" or "make believe Ati's." #Aetas were the primary settlers in the islands according to history books. The festival consists of tribal dance, music, accompanied by indigenous costumes and weapons, and parade along the street. Christians, and non-Christians observe this day with religious processions. The phrase "#HalaBira! #PweraPasma!" is originally associated with the #StoNino Ati-Atihan #Festival as the revelers and devotees keep on going with the festivities all over the town from morning to the wee hours of the next morning, rain or shine, for one week or even more. #digitalnomad  #kapitankokak #byahero #byahengpinas #pilipinaskongmahal #traveller #philippines #abogadonggala #paangmakati #nunalsapaa #backpacker

Sto. Niño and El Niño: When I saw the three, er, four of them posing together, I immediately saw the cute pairing. 
At the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines, the lady performer from Tribu Pan-ay, representing a Spanish señorita carrying the Sto. Niño statue on her right, nicely accommodated to pose with the kid and his relative, as the señorita flashed a big smile while wearing a very thick, uncomfortable big dress under the warm sun.

See the kid's cute smile? He was obviously also enjoying the festival like everyone else. This is what 'Dinagyang' is all about. Making friends and having fun.

When the saints come marching in: As part of their props at the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines, this tribu's giant Sto. Niños, or Child Jesus, were carried by the participants. 
I wonder if after the Dinagyang Festival, you can borrow these icons for your personal altar.

I wonder if after the Dinagyang Festival, you can borrow these icons for your personal altar. #dinagyang  #dinagyangfestival  #iloilocity  #iloilo  #festival  #atiatihan  #travel  #tourism  #tourist  #itsmorefuninthePhilippines  #Philippines  #blogger  #travelblog  #culture  #history  #panay  #art  #costumes  #stoniño  #religious  #jesus 
Ati atihan Festival 😱😂🇵🇭 #Nakalkal #saletino #atiatihan
'Cats' seem to be the inspiration for the costumes of this tribe at the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines. 
But then, there's a man in an owl costume.

Each tribu competing at the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines could include at least 30 drummers to make sure the drum beats and rhythm really created a festive mood and an energized performance. 
Although the drummers stood inside the performance area, they were not required to paint themselves brown. 
Then I could have joined the drummers as well. Here, I'm pretending to be one.😁 Is your drum as big as mine?😊 #dinagyang #dinagyangfestival #iloilocity #iloilo #festival #atiatihan #travel #tourism #tourist #itsmorefuninthePhilippines #Philippines #blogger #travelblog #culture #history #panay #panayisland

In 1967, a replica of the image of the Sto. Niño de Cebu was given to the Iloilo faithful who welcomed the statue of the Child Jesus with a parade from the airport and into the city.

Every competitor in the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines is required to have a segment about the Sto. Niño in their performance to tell the audience that these performances are both a religious and cultural celebration. 
Some 'tribus' have small Sto. Niño icons while some have oversized ones. 
This one is carried from the inside. Notice the whole on the chest where someone could peep through.

These kids from Tribu Obrero are rehearsing on the street before their actual performance at the main stage area.

As the competition at the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City in the Philippines is really stiff, all the groups make sure their performance is perfect.

I borrowed the drums of Tribu Abiador, one of the competing tribes at the Dinagyang Festival, and try to audition as a drummer. 😆I didn't get the part, but I think I could hear Gloria Estefan sing..."Turn the beat around🎶Let me hear percussion!🎵😊 #dinagyang #dinagyangfestival #iloilocity #iloilo #festival #atiatihan #travel #tourism #tourist #itsmorefuninthePhilippines #Philippines #blogger #travelblog #culture #history #panay #drums #percussion #performers #beat #drummers #fun #music

And since I didn't have my morning stretching on the day of the Dinagyang Festival, I decided to join the warm-up of the Tribu Obrero dancers.😁 And had I known the steps and blockings, I  probably would have joined their performance. Ha-ha-ha!

This is what every tourist coming to the Philippines should do: have fun!😁 #dinagyang #dinagyangfestival #iloilocity #iloilo #festival #atiatihan #travel #tourism #tourist #itsmorefuninthePhilippines #Philippines #blogger #travelblog #culture #history #panay #costumes #fashion #stretching #performers #performance #performing #performancearts #fun #havingfun

Tongue-in-cheek: The 'manananggal' is the Philippine version of a witch who could stretch their tongue down from the rooftop and into their victim's house to feed on a pregnant woman or baby at night. 
Tribu Paghidaet competing at the Dinagyang Festival  brought along a manananggal prop to help tell their theme about the scary side of the Philippine folklore. 
After the festival, some real manananggal in Iloilo would probably love to have this prop as a centerpiece in their living room. Ha-ha-ha!

Back in the 1200's, ten datus from Borneo sought refuge in Panay Island in the Philippines by asking the local aeta tribes, or ati in Ilonggo, to let them live in the plains.

Here, I'm asking my new friend, dressed up as an 'ati' (aeta) chieftain from one of the competing tribes, if he just happened to have woken up on the wrong side of the bed that morning.😁 Compared to his Dinagyang Festival get-up, I look...drab.🤣 Their tribe was one of the winners.🍻 #dinagyang #dinagyangfestival #iloilocity #iloilo #festival #atiatihan #travel #tourism #tourist #itsmorefuninthePhilippines #Philippines #blogger #travelblog #culture #history #panay #art #costumes #fashion #headdress #performers #creative #bodymakeup #makeup

Tribu Paghidaet's performance included mythical creatures such as 'tay-hô', the Philippine version of a minotaur.

The performers were from La Paz National High School and this performer, dressed as a 'tay-hô', took his role seriously. Even though their scheduled performance was an hour away, he was already emoting, creating drama with his eyes and posing next to me as a scary elemental.

They were the first to perform at the Freedom Grandstand. 
They won the 3rd runner-up prize.

Face-Off: The Dinagyang Festival competition rules allowed the tribes to bring props into their performance. These props were always cultural or religious characters that would reinforce the storyline of their performance. 
If I were the concept director for this tribe,  instead of non-smiling ati faces, I would have made them smile showing a few teeth that would define the conditions of dental care back in the 13th century. Ha-ha-ha!

The drummer boys finally arrived at the site near Stage #1, where we were conveniently staying. 
Each member had an assignment and took care of his own drum. Although they were just high school kids, they knew this competition wasn't child's play.

Drummer boys:  We were going back to our accommodation at 7AM from an early Sunday Mass when a group of tribe drummers on board a truck passed us by wearing their costumes, excitement and smiles.

Early birds: The performers and crew in the Dinagyang competition were not able to get enough sleep the night before because of jitters and excitement. 
According to one participant, he slept at 12 midnight and got up at 2AM to prepare. 
The competition started at 8AM and they had to be at the site at least an hour before that.

Here, a tribe disembarks from their transport around 7AM.

Just like any sport, these street-dancing performances are very physical. So, they had to warm up and stretch before they go on full 'hala-bira' mode.

Congratulations to Tribu Pan-ay for winning the 4th runner-up prize!

The tribe dancers were actually students from the Fort San Pedro National High School.

I think sharing my good vibes with them before their performance made them win.

The most colorful costumes at #dinagyangfestival attract the most attention. That's why I had to ask these two costumed dancers for a photo op.
