The Best Dinagyang Ever

Many who saw the Dinagyang 2007 agree that it was the best Dinagyang so far. Kudos to Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas and his hard-working staff for making this year's festivities a resounding success (Dinagyang photos here courtesy of Tara Yap and James Trimañez of THE GUARDIAN-Iloilo). Over a million tourists arrived in Iloilo according to news reports, among them foreign VIPs and dignitaries and even Dinagyang-related criminality declined too (read here). Except for a minor altercation between rival GMA and ABS CBN TV stations, Dinagyang 2007 went on without glitches. Click here to find out this year's winners.
