May 1, 2014

Bad News turns into Good News!! Cebu just thought that Sinulog Festival - Lumad Basakanon will not be participating this year Aliwan 2014, it was January 22 2014 an article from sunstar release a report that "Lumad Basakanon not joining Aliwan Festival" but I think the group and its organizer change their minds. Well, good decisions, because recently Aliwan 2014, the Sinulog Festival of Cebu City which Lumad Basakanon is representative tribe was declared as Aliwan 2014 Street Dance Champion.

The competition was called as "Grand Festival of Champions, Aliwan Fiesta", wherein different Philippine Festivals contingents gathered and compete through showcasing their dance, culture, pageantry, musicality and creativity of every regions.
