The Adventures of the Dynamic Tatays Part 2: Makati's Caracol Festival

My Caracol Festival Experience

After having a blast from our Food Trip/ Visita Iglesia in Binondo, me and Brian immediately went back to Makati to witness the Caracol Festival.

The name of the Festival is a Spanish term meaning "Snail" for it symbolizes it's toughness through harsh conditions of life which also relates to the theme of protecting our natural resources.

Me @ the starting point of the parade
 We were a bit early so we checked some of the participants on the parade.

A few minutes later, the parade started. The participants came from various schools and barangays all over Makati.

Spongebob was also here!

And to top it up there is a dance competition divided into three categories: Elementary, Highschool and Collegiate/ Open.

Aside from these trophies, cash prizes were also given
I decided to use a burst shot to show some of their routines:

I wanted to shoot more pictures but sadly my batteries died on me. It was already dark when we left even though the winners were not yet announced. I am just happy that there is still that Fiesta spirit within the corporate streets of Makati =). Again my special thanks to Brian of for some of the pics posted in this blog.
