    does it have the you tube now?
    Tribu Pan-ay didn’t show it all yet — suspenseful, you may say
    I still could remember they have the same shields and the refurbished eagle is yet to unravel only at Aliwan.
    We pray for the success of all Iloilo entries for Aliwan 2012.
    Good luck, Good health, and God Bless ILOILO ALIWAN CONTINGENTS

      not yet. yesterday I went to Fort San Pedro National High School to watch their final rehearsal. all i can say their performance amazes me. They changed the choreo and it was livelier and more fun to watch. I’ll be posting the video a day prior to Aliwan street dance competition. standby for that. =)

  • Alfie says:

    I agree kasi kayo lang ang binabantayan ng lahat ang iba nga tumigil ng 3 years para paghandaan at obserbahan lang kayo para talunin day at paluhudin he he he he. Pero kami dito sa may nila kayo talaga ang inaabangan….hidni ang iba kasi sasali sila ngayon wala naman sila bukas or after 3 years naman ulit para bang panandalian or nangaagaw attention lang….Go Go Go Dinagyang Festival you are really the Worth Best Festival of the Philippines.

  • Mike says:

    Hail the Queen Festival of the Philippines — Dinagyang Festival!!! My prayer for Dinagyang! God speed!

  • ilove-ilove says:

    Its now 3:30 pm April 13, we are still waiting for that final dress rehearsal by Tribu Pan-ay at Youtube.
    Is it deferred?
    Anyway tomorrow April 14 is the head-on collision of all champion festivals in the country at Aliwan Fiesta 2012. I understand the competition is to be carried live on Channel 13 (manila) and Channel 12 (iloilo).
    Is this correct, Mr. Mark Segador?
