Mayor: Kadayawan successful

MAYOR Sara Duterte-Carpio said the celebration of Kadayawan Festival 2017 was a success even with the imposition of Martial Law.

“So far, the celebration of Kadayawan Festival 2017 was successful. There was an overwhelming support from the private sector to the endeavor of the local government to put up a grand show for everybody,” she said.

The city mayor said the Martial Law failed to negate the city’s 32nd Kadayawan celebration.

“We’re happy that the Martial Law had no

negative effect in the celebration,” Mayor Carpio said.

“Despite the challenging times we have here in Mindanao, the visitors did not hesitate to come to Davao and celebrate with us,” she added.

Carpio also lauded the 11 tribes and other local government agencies that participated in this year’s celebration, stating that “if not because of them, the celebration would not have been made successful.”

The mayor also urged the Kadayawan executive committee to set the bar higher in the future festival celebrations as this year obviously topped the past celebrations of the festivity.

“All the observations, including mine, on the 2017 celebration will be collated and then considered to improve the next Kadayawan,” she said.
