The Sinulog de Kabankalan had about 1 weeks worth of celebrations and activities. One of the most awaited was the Mardi Gras, where different groups and baranggays got to show off their costumes in the parade.
The parade went on for about a kilometer all the way to the town plaza where contestants got to be judged by their costumes and dance numbers.
It lookled lke a lot of tie and effort was put in making the costumes for the Mardi Gras alog with the choreography for the dane numbers.
Featured in the this article are some of my favorites for the event in their costumes.
The night was fun filled as the residents of Kabankalan came out in force to watch the parade. One big question we had before was how were they going to make the music be heard through the entire parade. Simple really….
With the help of vehicle owners from kabankalan itself.
How did they do it? They lined up all the vehicles and had them tune in to a specific radio station and played back the music there.
How they solved the problem with syncing all the radios from each vehicle, i dont know. Bt it was great.
The picture above is the front face of the parade float.
Here are some of my favorite shots of the dancers.
