Hudyaka ZaNorte 2012 | Streetdancing Competition

One of my favorite highlights in every festival is the street dancing competition.  Last June 9, Hudyaka 2012, the provincial tourism event of Zamboanga del Norte (fondly called by the locals as ZaNorte), culminates with a street dance parade featuring local festivals of its municipalities and cities.

By 2:00 PM, we stood with the crowd under the scorching heat of the sun to witness contingents fill the streets with a burst of wonderful colors and music.

We hadn't had a decent lunch and the heat is borderline unbearable. But seeing the smiles of the performers made us forget all that.
