Last Sunday (January 27), the place where I live, celebrated Dinagyang 2008. Dinagyang is the biggest and most colorful religious and cultural festival in Iloilo City, Philippines. It started some 40 years ago in honor of Señor Santo Niño.

It was considered as the one of the grandest and most spectacular street parade in the country wherein colors and sounds were put together into a dance that reverberates in a multitude of figures and body kinetics. It was a dynamic and religious merry-making activity that symbolizes the devotion of every Ilonggos in making Iloilo "the only one" when it comes to its own story of faith and culture in perfect timing.

Checkout the following photos that reflects the Ilonggos celebration in their most fashionable way...

*Dinagyang was voted as the best Tourism Event for 2007.
