SEVERAL one-liners came to mind in the process of selecting a tagline for the 2013 Iloilo Dinagyang Festival: World-class!, Over the top, Societal Responsibility and Social Artistry, Festival with a Heart, A Fusion of Boom and Grandeur, Exceeding Expectations, etc. We were then looking for one that captures the essence of the event, one that defines the dreams and aspirations of the Ilonggos.
Through the years, Dinagyang has become synonymous with Iloilo City. The City’s glorious past, the present progress and development and the bright prospects for the future are all defined by the phrase “a fusion of boom and grandeur”. A mix of the blessings of the present and the valuable legacy of the past, allow hopes to spring and dreams to blossom. Dinagyang is the pride of Ilonggos.
