The 2015 Iloilo Dinagyang Festival for the first time will serve as venue to showcase the costumes of 30 major festivals in the country in what is dubbed as National Festival Costume Expo 2015.

Mayor Jed Patrick E. Mabilog stressed Dinagyang has become a promotional vehicle for other cities in the country to highlight their cultural and tourism attractions.

The exhibit will kick off with a simple program evening of January 22, 2015 phentermine, 2015, according to City Tourism Officer Benito Jimena.

He added that the expo is not a competition but purely an exhibition.

Alongside the exhibit is the weaving (hablon) demonstration, one of the oldest Ilonggo traditions.

Meanwhile, the costumes will be donned by live models for the parade of costumes during the Dinagyang Ati Contest on January 25, 2015.



The annual visit of the image of Señor Santo Niño from Cebu will arrive in Iloilo January 19, 2015 by plane to re-enact the first time it was brought in that eventually gave birth to Dinagyang Festival.

Rev. Fr. Raymund Edcel Alcayaga, OSA said that originally the image was brought to Iloilo from Cebu via Philippine Airlines (PAL) but they would just settle for available plane that is plying the Cebu-Iloilo route.

The image will have a pilgrimage tour passing through the towns of Cabatuan, Sta. Barbara, Pavia and Jaro district.

A motorcade will bring the image to the San Jose Parish Church after a courtesy visit with Archbishop Angel Lagdameo. /Iloilo City PIO
