Piyesta Korona
Piyesta Korona is a mix of street dancing, mardi gras, float competition and street party.
I am most excited with this year’s edition of Piyesta Korona, one of the highlights of Hinugyaw Festival celebration. I was able to experienced it firsthand last 2012 and was really entertained by lively performances in the open street dancing competition, was able to witnessed the skills and talents of Koronadale├▒os in their version of colorful Mardi Gras and the float competition. Also looking forward to experience for the first time the foam party and disco sa kalye.
