With theme, “KANAWAY Festival Sakdagon Para Pag-uswag sa Quinto Maagum,” the celebration looks to maintain its reputation as being one of the gems in the crown of provinces’ ever-growing repertoire of natural, historical and cultural attractions.
Known as the Resort Destination of the province, the Fifth Congressional District in the northern area is characterized with an excellent ambiance of white sand island beaches, some remote and others relatively easily reached. If you intend on having a piece of island all to yourself with natural beauty, the northern portion offers many worth seeking out. Try to make it there soon before it gets dominated by tourists.
This year, Kanaway also provide a precious opportunity for the people of northern Iloilo to break free from their hectic routines of rebuilding their daily life devastated by the last destructive typhoon Yolanda where lives were lost, infrastructures were destroyed. The typhoon is now a thing of the past for the affected communities who have slowly recovered from the disaster.
