It has contributed a lot to the region from tourist attraction to the perspective of fun and adventure. Everybody is happy with the competition, street dancing, merry making, beauty pageants, concerts and ofcourse the food festivals; every corners of the Iloilo shows the abundance of the never ending love, after all Iloilo has the City of Love title that entails not only the people but the city itself which literally creates a vibration LOVE and atmosphere of laughters, happiness and element surprise

Everybody asks for more and this festival wouldn’t end until the end of night which usually ends up with stampede’s and claustrophobic streets but everybody seemed to be okay and not notice it, no problem, I guess it’s how that works as long as everybody enjoys.
