in travel •  15 days ago  (edited)

Yesterday me and my friends attended the biggest annual street party in the philippines known as Tigtigan Terakan Keng Dalan(TTKD) means singing and dancing in the street. This event is celebrated every last friday and saturday of october in 1 kilometer road stretch of Mcarthur Highway, Montang ave., Balibago, Angeles City, Pampanga, Philippines

20191027_212156.jpgOur plan is to go in the event place early because we don't want to encounter the traffic jams and the crowds. We arrived in the event place from around 7:30-8:00pm which is 2 hours earlier than the party starting time, so we have much time for walking, sightseeing and taking selfies because when the party starts, walking around is not easy because this place will be crowded by thousands of people (locals and foreigns).

20191027_212132.jpgDuring our walk we've seen at least 5 stages and each stage are sponsored with differents companies, and it is expected that there are also local celebrities who are performing in the stages later on..

20191027_212226.jpgWe also see different brands and food booths some is offering freebies and giveaways when you buy foods or items to them and some booths have games to play.

20191027_212304.jpgI love the idea of free games with prizes Lol, so we try every games we see and it is so much fun because not just we enjoy the games we also got some souvenir prizes.

20191027_212030.jpgAnd also during our walk we see this old man named lolo(grandfather) Lito who is selling candies and we bought candies for my friend's daughters.I salute people like lolo Lito because despite of his age he still working decently for his living with a very sweet smile on his face like his candies.

20191026_224511.jpgAnd after more than a hour of walking and sightseeing the event celebration has started and as expected there are some local celebrities to perform like this band named SPONGECOLA, this rock band is very popular in our country and most of their songs are very familliar to every one of us, so the time that this rock band started to sing also the people started on singing and dancing too and it's a lot of fun to see people like that...

and after this long night we decided to go home to take a rest that's around 2:00am, honestly we don't want to go home yet because there's still lot of fun things to do there but we are all tired and exhausted Lol, So even if we don't want to we decided to go home..

Overall it was a lot of fun and joyful experience and all of us can't wait for the next TTKD event next year Lol....
