Description

Davao City is celebrating 81st Araw ng Dabaw this coming March 16, 2018. That’s 81 long years were characterized by both progress and struggles, the latest where the city’s former Mayor for over 22 years became the 16th Philippine President. Though Araw ng Dabaw is only on the 16th, it has become a city tradition to have a month-long celebration; a combination of cultural, ethnic and modern events that showcase Davao City talent and beauty. The highlight of the entire celebration is of course, the Mutya ng Dabaw 2018 and the Parada DavaoeƱo.
