Kadayawan Festival 2012: To Go or Not To Go?

For this year's Kadayawan Festival, medyo nag-aalinlangan pa akong pumunta. Maybe because there will be no Purok Sison Elementary School to perform in the Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan and maybe because I really want to go and experience the Takladtamig Dos, a mountain climbing for a cause at Mt. Melibingoy in T'boli, South Cotabato which also falls on August 18th (street dancing competition day of Kadyawan Festival 2012)

Good thing I was able to attend in at least the street dancing competition (Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan) last year in which three contingents coming from South Cotabato had joined and all placed in the Top 5 of the Indak- Indak sa Kadalanan Open Category. The group of elementary pupils from my hometown the Purok Sison Elementary School Performing Arts Group which I am very proud of was declared as champion in the Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan Open Category, the  group from Sto. Niño, South Cotabato was first runner-up and contingents from Tupi finished at 5th. 

There will be no Purok Sison ES in Kadayawan Festival 2012 Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan this year ( after winning the title for 3 consecutive years they were declared as grandslam champion last year, which means they're not allowed to compete for this year) Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan 2011 Results kaya nag-aalangan akong pumunta, although for sure the group from Sto.Niño will be there and will surely do their best once again.

Gusto ko din abangan yung performance ng ibang contingents especially from South Cotabato but i also would like to go for Takladtamig Dos which is not only a mountain-climbing event participants will also participate in tree-planting and gift-giving activities. So anu kaya, Kadayawan Festival 2012.. to go or not to go?
