Posters, signage, flaglets/ banderitas can be seen everywhere. Once you see a bunch of people huddled together the topic of discussion is definitely something about Dinagyang. The parade route, the traffic and re-routing, store sales, costumes, face mask/paint, tattoo, hair highlights, etc.
The fiesta mode is really up in the air. And like I always do every time I go around anywhere, I am trying to document important and interesting moments as much as I can . The week of Dinagyang is such an interesting subject to document by photos. Here’s a sort of photo blog on the week of Dinagyang Festival 2012.
henna tattoo, hair highlights, costume, face mask/paints are the order of the weekofficial website, each malls and major establishments have their own sets of schedules for Dinagyang.
