Aliwan Fiesta 2010, A Colorful Celebration of Life from 7107 Philipppines Island

Aliwan Fiesta 2010, A Colorful Celebration of Life from 7107 Philipppines Island

April 24, 2010
Mall of Asia

Aliwan Fiesta is always the most awaited annual event for most of the photographers like me. I opted to skip my Sunset Run in Greenfield and brave the strong heat at 2pm to shoot in MOA. As expected, the colorful costumes, floats and beautiful parade muses makes the photographers go wild! as their shutter clicks sounds like a drum beat.

This seems to be a long walk for the participants marching from MOA to Star City, but I prefer the recent formation area which is huge enough for the participants to practice their dance piece.

Kudos to the organizer! A job well done and Congratulations to the Winners!

A yearly event being sponsored by Manila Broadcasting Company (MBC), a pioneering radio station in the Philippines and the largest broadcasting network in Asia. Aliwan Fiesta is a festival of different cultures in the Philippines, its a parade of intricate and well designed costumes, a thematic rythmic of dance and scynchronize movements, an equivalent floats as gorgeous as the Pasadena Rose Parade and the beautiful muses representing a true Pinay.
