We have attended and witnessed some of the activities of Hinabyog Festival last year and from what we've seen, it is one of the most colorful festivals in the region. A festival not to be missed every year.

Main highlight of Hinabyog Festival is the street dancing competition which is participated by various schools in Esperanza. We were amazed with the lively performances of each competing contingents and noticed their colorful and lovely costumes that depicts the different tribes in Esperanza - the Muslims, Christians and Tedurays.

Sharing below some photos taken during the Hinabyog Festival street dancing competition last year.
