Mayor Sara says Kadayawan Festival successful


Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio has considered as successful the 10-day Kadayawan Festival, which ended Sunday, August 19.

“I can say that the event was a success since I can see that people are happy with our celebration,” Duterte-Carpio said.

She expressed gratitude to all the people who worked hard for the joyful and successful 33rd Kadayawan Festival.

“I’d like to thank everyone who worked hard for the success of our celebration. Also, thank you to those people who came out of their houses and joined us in our festivity,” the presidential daughter said.

The city government of Davao had allotted P44 million for this year’s Kadayawan Festival, P2 million higher than last year’s budget.

The recent festivity was branded as the biggest Kadayawan ever as the celebration started a bit earlier than the previous Kadayawan.
