We watched the One Visayas presentation at the Cebu International Convention Center tonight. ‘One Visayas’ is a very noble initiative of the leaders of the different provinces in the Visayas. This project is a move to unite the neighboring provinces for the benefit not only of the region but also of the entire country. Present during the program were provincial leaders who showed their support by bringing with them their local festivals and products. Here are some photos that I took.
Inside the CICC, there were small booths showcasing the different sights and sounds of the different provinces in the Visayas.
One Visayas! One People. One Destiny.

It was nice to see the Masskara festival perform in Cebu!
This one is a really nice festival from Siquijor. I think it’s called Solili Festival.
I think this was the team from Sta. Catalina. Very nice performance.
The performance of the Siloy Festival of Alcoy, Cebu, got a standing ovation.
At the end of the program, all dancers danced while singing the One Visayas theme.
Go One Visayas!
